Two incidents near Indianapolis this weekend had police finding a 4-month-old dead after being left in a car, while a 16-month-old was found in seizures after she was rescued from a 124 degree vehicle.
I cannot understand for the life of me how this can happen.
One of the women charged in a case like this said she left her 6, 3, and 1-year-old in the car because the middle child was “a handful” to take shopping.
After the jump watch the video of a person inside a car with the windows rolled up on a 90 degree day to see what happens to your kids and pets left in the heat — even for 5 minutes.
Dr Ernie Ward locked himself in a car with the windows opened a crack, the way people do, to show how fast the temperature rises, and what happens to the body on a regular summer day.
This video is geared at pet owners, but watching the sweat drip off the doc makes you cry for the kids unfortunate enough to have parents who think this behavior is acceptable.
