What kind of parent leaves their kid in the car to go shopping? You just don’t do that, hot or cold weather, not even to “just pick up one thing”.
If you do that, you don’t deserve to procreate. Take your kids with you, always. Doesn’t matter how much of a pain in the ass it can be.
This heartbreaking video shows the moment one mother left her child in the car while she quickly popped to the shops – unaware of the consequences of her decision. The video was created in a bid to raise awareness of vehicular heat stroke.

In the United States, one child dies every 10 days after being left in an hot vehicle for too long. It only takes 15 minutes for a child to suffer life-threatening brain and kidney injures and once their temperature reaches 104 degrees their internal organs will start to shut down.
Since 1998 there have been 575 deaths because of vehicular heat stroke and 73% of the children in these cases were under the age of 2.
The execution of the video’s message is a powerful one so make sure you pass it along and think twice about leaving children and pets in cars on hot days.
