A five-year-old girl found unconscious in a parked car in the NSW Hunter region has died in hospital.
Emergency services found the girl when they were called to a home in Tanilba Bay, Port Stephens, on Tuesday.
She was flown to John Hunter Children’s Hospital in a critical condition.
Police say she died this morning and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
The news comes a week after two sisters, aged one and two, died after they were left in a car in the suburb of Logan, south of Brisbane. Their mother, 27-year-old Kerri-Ann Conley, has been charged with two counts of murder.
