It’s easy to get tired when you are a parent of newly born child since they are neediest during this stage of their lives. However, people will find it quite impossible for a parent to completely forget their child since their lives revolve around taking good care of them.
Recently though, a mother is being questioned by the authorities when she left her 7-week-old child inside a hot car reaching a temperature of 104F or 40C.
On Sunday night, July 2, police received a 911 call from panicked relatives of the infant.
The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office found the baby at around 9:30 pm. According to reports, the child's mother placed the baby in a rear-facing car seat inside the vehicle at around 12.45pm. The mother then forgot that the child was in the back seat and left the poor infant there to cook under the hot weather.
'Florida ranks second in the nation in these preventable tragedies with 82 fatalities from 1992-2016,' according to a press statement by the organization.
Due to this, the said organization is pushing to pass a law called the Hot Cars Act of 2017 wherein all motor vehicles will be required to install an alarm system inside their cars which would be triggered if ever a person is still inside the automobile despite the ignition being turned off.
