MOMENTS COUNT: Leaving your child in a closed car, even for a short time, can be fatal. Summer is here - just don't risk heat stroke or dehydration.

SYDNEY, Australia - It's a timely warning for South African parents as our summer gets into gear... an Australian toddler has died of dehydration in a parked car.

Police in Australia have charged a mother with manslaughter after her young child died of dehydration, alone in a car.


A police statement says the 30-year-old, charged with the death of her 22-month-old daughter, could go to jail for 25 years.

Police say the woman took her daughter to a clinic a week ago but the child could not be resuscitated. It is not known how long the baby girl was alone in the car.

An autopsy found the toddler died of dehydration.

The mother's name has not been released for legal reasons.
