 Heat Kills
Happening again

Its hot out. Again a 3 month old baby was left in a closed car for over 2 hours while her Dad did errands. How the hell can a parent "forget" a baby in a closed car for over 2 hours? Where do they think the babys are?
A researcher says 18 children have died of hyperthermia since the beginning of the year, with eight deaths reported since June 13. That's the largest number of deaths through the first half of a year
2 police dogs left in cars added to casualties. Plus who knows how many unreported animals death related to heat have
occurred.


MY DEAR MOMMY

I JUST WANTED TO ASK YOU SOMETHING
BEFORE I GO AWAY
WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME IN THIS CAR
ON THIS VERY VERY HOT DAY?

WITH ALL THE WINDOWS UP
STRAPPED IN MY CAR SEAT?

I CRIED AND CRIED
BUT NO ONE HEARD ME

THE SWEAT WAS POURING IN MY EYES
BURNING, I CAN'T SEE!

IT'S SO HOT IN HERE!!
WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME?

YOU SAID YOU WOULD BE RIGHT BACK
WHERE ARE YOU?
I CAN'T BREATHE!!!

I SEE BLACK IN FRONT OF MY EYES
I FEEL DIZZY!

IT'S 160 DEGREES IN HERE
I CAN'T GET OUT!

I HAVE NO MORE STRENGTH
TO CRY OR SHOUT..

NOW I SEE 2 ANGELS
COMING TO TAKE ME AWAY

I CLOSE MY EYES
TODAY I GUESS I DIED

BUT IT'S COOL UP HERE IN THE CLOUDS
WHERE THE ANGELS TOOK ME TO LIVE

BUT MOMMY I JUST WANTED TO KNOW
WHY DID YOU LEAVE ME IN THE CAR
IT WAS LIKE BURNING IN HELL...

GOODBYE, MOMMY
LOVE, YOUR BABY

IN THE LAST 3 WEEKS, HERE IN ARIZONA WHERE THE TEMPERATURES
ARE 110-114 DEGREES, MANY ANIMALS LEFT IN CARS WHILE THEIR OWNERS
GO RUN AN ERRAND HAVE ALSO DIED.

IN THE LAST 3 WEEKS, 2 SIBLINGS IN THE CARE OF DAY CARE WORKERS
WERE LEFT IN A VAN FOR 3 HOURS BEFORE ANYONE NOTICED NO ONE HAD
GOT THEM OUT, 1- 4 MONTHS OLD THE OTHER 18 MONTHS OLD. BOTH WERE
DEAD WHEN THEY WERE "FOUND".

AT ANOTHER DAY CARE CENTER AFTER AN OUTING A 3 YEAR OLD WAS LEFT
IN A CAR, FOR 6 HOURS BEFORE ANYONE FIGURED OUT SHE WASN'T THERE.

AT A SHOPPING CENTER A MOTHER LEFT 2 CHILDREN UNDER 2 IN A VAN FOR
OVER AN HOUR WHILE SHE SHOPPED, TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL WHERE THEY
BOTH LATER DIED.

A WEEK AGO, A MOTHER LEFT A 3 MONTH OLD BABY STRAPPED IN THE CAR
SEAT, SHE WAS TIRED AND FORGOT HE WAS THERE, WENT IN AND TOOK A
4 HOUR NAP, WHEN SHE WOKE UP REALIZED SHE HAD LEFT HIM OUT THERE?
HE WAS DEAD..

2 DAYS AGO A LADY WAS IN COSTCO FOR 30 MINUTES. 2 MEN PARKING NEXT
TO HER TRUCK SAW A SHADOW AND LOOKED IN, SEEING A BABY BROKE THE
WINDOW GOT THE BABY OUT GAVE CPR AND CALLED AN AMBULANCE.
CONDITION UNKNOWN AT THIS TIME. THIS MOTHER IS IN JAIL. SHE IS OR
WAS A PUBLIC DEFENDER FOR PHOENIX.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE? HOW CAN DAY CARE WORKERS WHO
ARE TRUSTED TO CARE FOR YOUR CHILD SO YOU CAN WORK, NOT KNOW THERE
ARE CHILDREN MISSING?
HOW CAN A PARENT? THEY I AM SURE HAVE SAT IN THEIR CAR WITH THE
WINDOW DOWN POURING SWEAT, NOT ABLE TO BREATHE, LEAVE A CHILD IN
A CAR STRAPPED IN A CAR SEAT WITH THE WINDOWS UP, WHILE THEY SHOP
OR TAKE A NAP? BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH A CHILD
WHILE THEY DO WHATEVER?

I KNOW SOME OF YOU WILL THINK MY WRITE IS CRUEL, YOU WOULDN'T EVER
DO THAT! THAT IS TRUE. BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE AND THEIR BABIES
DIE A HORRIBLE DEATH ~ALONE~ JUST LIKE IF THEY WERE IN A BURNING
HOUSE. IF THIS MAKES ONE PERSON ~NOT~ LEAVE THEIR CHILD IN A CAR,
NOT LEAVE 1 PET IN THE CAR. 1 CHILD CARE WORKER MAKE SURE THEY KNOW
AT ALL TIMES WHERE ALL THE KIDS ARE LEFT IN THEIR CARE, THEN IT SERVED
IT'S PURPOSE.
AND I DON'T CARE IF SOME OF YOU DON'T LIKE IT.

IT'S HAPPENING THIS VERY MINUTE! ANOTHER CHILD IS DYING FROM BEING
LEFT IN A CAR WITH THE WINDOWS UP!
