A YOUNG girl is fighting for her life after she was left inside a 50C bus for seven hours.

The three-year-old was reportedly found locked in a van at the Le Smileys Early Learning Centre in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia.

Paramedics found the youngster ‘unconscious’ in a van

Paramedics were called to the centre at about 2.50pm local time where they treated the seriously-ill youngster.

Queensland Ambulance confirmed the girl was “unconscious” when they found her and is now in a critical condition in Rockhampton Hospital.

Her parents are at the hospital.

“‘The girl was located on a bus out the front of a school on Lucas Street [and] was transported in a critical condition to Rockhampton Hospital,” they said on social media.

According to a local report, the girl had been on the bus since 9.30am.

Temps in Rockhampton reached 29C on Wednesday.

A vehicle in 29C temperatures for more than an hour brings it to over 50C, according to a heat calculator.

Cops are understood to be interviewing staff at the centre and are inspecting a white minivan.

Queensland Ambulance Service paramedic Jason Thompson was at the scene when the girl was found.
