This publication was told that when the mother returned home from work at about 10:30h on Tuesday morning, she enquired whether the child was sent to school.

It was then that family members in the house realized that the child was missing. This led to a search of the area during which the lad was found in a car.

He was pulled from the vehicle in an unconscious state and taken to the Mahdia Hospital where doctors attempted to revive him.

A relative told this publication that the child temporarily became responsive and called for his mom but died shortly after.
