Paramedics that were called to the scene were not able to resuscitate the infant. Nitra regional police spokewoman Božena Bruchterová told the TASR newswire that a police investigator and a coroner have already been dispatched to deal with the incident. It seems that the infant was closed in the car for several hours, and probably died of suffocation, having also burns and singes from the heat.

The father found Kristína in the car when leaving his work. The rescuers dispatched to the site were not able to resuscitate her.
