DPS: Don’t Leave Kids in Hot Cars

It’s never a good idea to leave your children locked in a hot car.

“Unfortunately that happens,” Trooper Dion Cockrell told KTSA News. “Year after year, we’re finding stories that some child was left in a car by a parent or family member and as a result died of some heat injury.”

He said it can prove deadly.

“We’ve already had incidents that have happened where children were left in a vehicle and as a result have died from heat injury,” Cockrell said. “If we are driving with our kids in the vehicle, double check to make sure we don’t leave them in the vehicle and, even if we leave the vehicle for a moment, not to leave that child in a car unattended.”
