Child Neglect During a Heatwave
by BMW Princess
There is a heatwave in my province.
It so severe, Environment Canada put out a warning.
That is why i's so upset by the fact that a 3 year old girl was left in a car for 5-10 minutes at a WalMart. A passerby Josh Steep noticed the semi-conscious child in the car and broke her out. He called 911 and took the child into the cool store.
I consider this neglect. It was plus thirty yesterday.
Why would you leave a toddler in a car until she was almost unconscious? It's not rocket science!! It was plus thirty! The cops say they don't know if charges will be laid but i think there should be charges. That is in my opinion child neglect. Those parents are lucky they still have a child.
Mr Steep if you are reading this thanks for saving that little girl and don't pay for the window <3
Also if anyone could shed some light on why a parent would leave a child in a car during a heatwave it would be appecriated.
