Just saw this on the news. Happened in the upscale suburb of Homewood in the Bbam area. Praying for the child, it was extremely hot today. How can someone be so stupid and forget your child is in the car?! LINK
Homewood Police are investigating an unresponsive child found inside a vehicle. It happened around 1:30 Wednesday afternoon on 19th Street and Oxmoor Road. Police on the scene say a 1 year old child was found unresponsive inside a white Lexus SUV. The child was rushed to Children's of Alabama. Right now, the child's condition is not known. Meanwhile, police are questioning the child's mother and witnesses on the scene.
ABC 33/40's Sarah Snyder spoke with a nearby business owner. He says the child's family owns Genesis Nail Spa. The mother usually takes the child to daycare but instead stopped by to visit her husband. The business owner says the toddler was in the car from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. The child was given CPR until paramedics arrived. The child's temperature was around 105 degrees.
