AMSTERDAM – A dead baby was found in a car in Baarle-Nassau today. The boy was 11 months old, a spokesperson for the police has confirmed.

The car was in a parking space near a public primary school on the Cor van der Bokstraat. The baby was discovered at about 2.15pm on Wednesday.

The mother's identity is known and she is being provided support by family and friends. The police do not want to say anything about the cause of death at the moment.

A baby also died last week in the Belgian town of Halle when his mother left him behind in the car. She had forgotten to drop him off at day care and the 5-month-old died of dehydration because of the high temperatures in the car.
