A 16-month-old baby has died in a car in Switzerland, after one of the parents forgot to drop it off at the nursery on the way to work.

The baby was left in a company car park for several hours in La Chaux-de-Fonds near the French border, officials say.

"It was not until the end of the day... that they realised what had happened," AFP news agency quotes local prosecutor Marc Remy as saying.

A criminal investigation into the accident has been launched.

Prosecutors told Swiss media that no further details would be released.
