After an hour or so, Adnan's parents returend to the car only to find their son lying unconscious inside.
Adnan was rushed to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital in Shahdara where doctors declared him dead.
This incident should act as an eye-opener to people who leave their children locked inside cars. While locking them in, they should ensure that the windowpanes are slightly kept open, so that children can get air.
