Baby girl left alone for 10 hours after dad dies of heart attack

SELANGOR - An 18-month baby girl in Taman Cempaka, Ampang went without food and water for more than 10 hours after her father suffered a fatal heart attack on Friday morning.

It was reported that the baby's mother had gone to work at about 8.30am and was shocked to find her husband dead in the bathroom when she returned in the evening.

The 36-year-old father worked at a moneychanger's and usually went to work after sending his daughter to a babysitter's house nearby, Tamil Nesan reported.

The babysitter had assumed that the father was on leave and was looking after his daughter when he did not bring the girl in the morning.

Her mother rushed the baby to Hospital Kuala Lumpur where she has been admitted in a serious condition.
