This incident purportedly shows the shocking moment that a dying dog was discovered after his owners left him in a boiling car while they shopped at Ikea.
In the unverified footage, which was posted on LiveLeak, 14-month-old boxer Fidji can be seen desperately panting while a policeman smashes the car window to free the animal from his plight. And after a bottle of water is thrown over Fidji, he is soon removed from the car. But he had stayed in the vehicle for an agonising four hours, according to a caption accompanying the video, and died at 8PM the same day from internal bleeding despite undergoing a three hour operation.
The caption added that the animal belonged to a French family en route to a wedding in Spain who had stopped off at Ikea to find a wedding gift.
