“I just have to grab a few things…” she thinks before entering a store. What she didn’t think to do is to bring her child inside with her. Instead, she leaves her child behind, thinking she’ll only be a few minutes. Her thoughtless action ends up having tragic consequences.
Although this video is a reenactment, tragedies like this one still happen to children (and to pets) year after year. That’s why it’s still such an important message to remind people of.
That’s what one police officer did recently when he berated a mother who had left her kids alone in a hot car.
There’s never a bad time to spread the word about the dangers of leaving a loved one in a car on a hot day. If it makes one person think twice, it may just save a life!
