The summer heat can be brutal, especially in a car. Every year, stories of children and animals being left in a hot vehicle and dying spread across the country.
Most recently, a father was arrested for the death of his toddler twin daughters' death after being left in a hot car for an extended amount of time.
Parents must be aware of the dangers of leaving a small child who can not get out of a hot vehicle on their own. It is imperative to make sure you are not leaving a child or animal inside a car when you leave it to prevent a wrongful or negligent death.
