First responders demonstrate dangers of hot cars

Weather News

Following last week’s death of a three-year-old girl in Indianapolis, Indiana, two first responders decided to sit in a squad car to show just how hot it can get on a summer day.

 State police Sgt. John Perrine and Capt. Mike Pruitt with Wayne Township Fire sat in the car for thirty minutes talking, all while broadcasting their demonstration on social media. 

 “The message is simple: Don’t leave anyone in the car regardless of temperature, regardless of what is going on. It’s not safe to leave a young child,” said Perrine. 

 Nine children have already died in hot cars nationally this spring. 

 43 died last year.
