It’s a story that’s almost too tragic to tell.
A Perth dad drives to a childcare centre in Helena Valley to collect his 11-month-old son.
He walks into the Ladybugs Early Learning Centre and asks the staff for his son, only to be told that the boy never arrived at day care that morning.
No one dropped him off.
Only minutes later, the 11 month old is found strapped into the car seat of his dad’s Honda Civic.
He’s not breathing.
Staff from the childcare centre try desperately to administer first aid and CPR to the unresponsive child, but nothing works.
Police investigating the baby’s death are not treating it as suspicious.
“At this time the child’s death is not being treated as a homicide, however inquiries into the circumstances leading up to the child’s death are continuing,” a police spokesperson told the media.
