As an asthmatic I was often brought to a steamy bathroom in the middle of the night, but never left unattended even in my teens someone was always there.

Please let this be a reminder to never leave children unattended, especially when sick, So sorry for this baby,

Doesn’t mean that he died from the heat, it could be that he was passed away from the cough…or maybe something else…ppl don’t just die from steam

Any type of heat exposure for long durations of time especially the elderly, children or ones with illness are susceptible. Steamy showers are sauna conditions, that’s why there are time limits for them and warnings that may be dangerous.

If the child was left in a hot bathroom for a long period of times, constrained, without water and already having trouble breathing this is a dangerous combonation

Being exposed to high temperatures of heat will lead to a heat stroke
And this was at least1.5hr

Father should heal from this. He is probably suffering and in deep shock.

Parents!

Parents!

Please, if you look on the instructions on how this should be done, it’s 15/20 min. max and you must ALWAYS be with the child!!

It's a double tragedy.

The father must have dozed off and was horrified when he awoke an hour and a half later. Hashem Yishmor. Too painful especially right before Yom Tov. HAMAKOM YINACHEM….

It’s called heat-stroke.
8 elderly people just passed away last week in Hollywood, FL due to the air conditioning not working. even though there were fans blowing on them.
