This month a baby in Georgia was left in a vehicle for nearly two hours after the family returned from church. Tragically the 11-month-year-old baby died as a result. According to the county Sheriff “…there was a lack of communication within the three adults. They assumed that one of the others had brought in the child and laid him down. They didn’t communicate who would get the child.”
Just over a month ago Governor Cuomo urged New Yorkers to “Look before you lock,” a campaign designed to raise awareness and reduce the number of preventable tragedies in New York.
Since 2014 more than 30 children have died after being left in hot vehicles.
Although the temperatures will be dropping soon, we urge you to remain vigilant and always look before you lock.
