An Australian man is in a critical condition after spending hours in the Sun with his toddler daughter and the sun, but his parents have managed to take care of him.
The Australian ABC reports that the man was taken to hospital for treatment on Friday night after spending about 30 minutes in the sunlight.
He suffered minor burns to his arm and wrist and was given intravenous oxygen after being rushed to hospital.
But the man’s mother, a nurse at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, has said she is “shocked” by his condition and is trying to recover from his injuries.
“He’s really a good baby, she told the ABC.
She was trying to get the baby out of the car and out of there, but they didn’t have enough space to put the baby into the car, so they put the car in the back of a pickup, so she’s not sure how she’s going to get back to the house,” Ms Tingley said.
Ms Tingle told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that the family had just taken a break from work and were at home when the accident happened.
ABC News understands that the accident occurred in the early hours of Friday morning.
An ambulance was called to the home after the woman’s baby boy, known as Alex, was found unresponsive in the car.
Alex was treated at the scene for minor burns, and was transferred to the Royal Perth Hospital for further treatment.
Police say the child is in serious condition.
A spokesman for the hospital said they had been “overwhelmed by the outpouring of concern” from the community.
Mr Tingling told the news channel that he is “just so sorry for what has happened”.
“I just think that I need to be here, I just need to put myself back together, and just do everything I can to get Alex out of here,” he said.
The ABC says that while the man is not expected to survive, his injuries are serious enough to warrant an ambulance.
Victoria Police are assisting the Royal Advertiser with their investigation.
