A two-year-old Austrian girl died on Monday after allegedly being put in a scalding-hot shower by her father as a punishment, the hospital where she was being treated said Monday.

"Despite all the doctors' efforts the child died at midday from her serious injuries," said Christoph Mierau, a spokesman for the Vienna Hospitals Association.

The girl had been in intensive care for two weeks. Prosecutors are investigating the parents, who have two other children, for alleged mistreatment of a minor with fatal consequences.
