Warning: This is a Life or Death Situation
You are probably thinking who could ever do that? I am a stay at home mom and my job is to take care of my children. Their are many parents in this country now that have so much going on that it is easy for a child to get lost in the scatter. I don't believe these parent s really do it on purpose, but they do have to suffer the consequences.
The most obvious is the child dying or having brain damage. Could you really live with yourself knowing this could have been prevented? If the child dies, you could be charged with involuntary manslaughter or child endangerment.
- In the summer months, the temperature in a parked car and reach above 120 degrees in as little as 10 minutes.
- Heat exhaustion can occur at temps above 90 degrees and heat stroke can occur when temps rise above 105 degrees.
- If you see a child in a hot car alone, call 911 immediately-you're call can be the difference between life and death.
- Never leave a child in an unattended car, even with the windows rolled down.
- Check and make sure all the children leave the vehicle when you reach a destination.
- Make sure unoccupied cars are locked, so that children don't become trapped.
Remember parents, our children depend on us to keep them safe. Please watch out for other children in cars also. Hot cars and children is a life and death situation.
