A 1-year-old girl is in a critical condition in hospital after getting her head trapped in a car window in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, on Monday.
Police said they received an emergency call from a man at 9:40 a.m., reporting that a baby girl had "her head stuck in the window of a car." The girl, who has been identified as Kaho Nakanishi, is the second daughter of office worker Yusuke Nakanishi, 30. Emergency services personnel released Kaho from the electric window and rushed her to hospital where she is said to be in a serious condition and has not yet regained consciousness.
According to police, Kaho and another 1-year-old girl were entrusted to a female daycare worker at around 7:45 a.m. The 41-year-old woman told police that she parked her car to go and buy food for the children. Kaho and the other girl were in the back seat and not in child seats when the incident occurred.
