Cold Weather

Recently two little kids were found inside a car on a freezing day.  They were found and rescued before they were injured but they had been there for over an hour.  I often write about the need to check parking lots for children in cars in the summer, well check them in winter also.

Cars don't hold heat well.  Only when the heater is on does a car get warm and stay warm.  The metal conducts cold very well and the car will cool down quickly.  Children left in a car will get uncomfortably cold very fast.

If they are left alone long enough or if it is cold enough, they can die.  Child endangerment, child neglect, child abuse are serious crimes and I think that depending on the weather, and age of the child you may have these crimes if kids are left alone in a vehicle when it's cold; that's what the SGT Says.
