    CT - Benjamin Seitz, 15 mos, dies in hot car, Ridgefield, 7 July 2014

    'A 15-month-old boy has died after being left unattended in a hot car on Monday, according to police in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

    Police learned of the incident around 6 p.m. Monday, according to Capt. Jeff Kreitz.

    It's not clear exactly how long the boy was inside the parked car, but Kreitz said in a news release he was there for "an extended period of time."

    http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/l...266229041.html

    'Police declined to answer questions surrounding the death, including how long the child was left in the car and whether a window was rolled down. Temperatures in the area on Monday reached 87 degrees.'

    I know. If I ruled the world, I'd make it illegal to leave any living creature in a stopped vehicle, at any time.

    I've had run-ins with two very stupid pet owners/drivers about leaving their dogs in hot cars - they remember the temp the vehicle was at when they were in it, driving, with the air con on. I got some person who 'thought their dog was fine for 15 mins in a stopped car' to sit in the car with a heavy coat on. They got out after five.

    Read a post of Facebook today the suggest the Shoe Method for never forgetting your child in the car seat. You remove your left shoe and put it with the baby's seat. (or a cell phone would be a good idea too, iPad, kindle, nook, hell throw it all back there).

    That way you will always remember your shoe, and your child. I thought it made a lot of sense. Many people don't have the intent to hurt their children. They forget. Everyone says they would never forget. I know some people that i think could pretty easily forget due to ADD and hyper-focuing.

    So, I guess leaving your baby in a hot car is the new trend? Just disgusting.

    How in the world through all of the headlines that have been on the news about this, could you go and do the very same thing? This is happening way too frequently to be accidental. It's because they do it intentionally, imo. You just leave a poor innocent baby in a car to cook to death, because you're at wits end or whatever the hell else. It's no excuse I don't mean to be offensive, but if I strap my son in his booster seat and I know I have to go to work, and he has to go to daycare-then I know that's my first stop! How do you forget that and just drive straight to work?! How do you forget a baby, I just can't understand it. I am sick.

    Another baby left in their fathers car while he goes to work. I've read other reports saying he drove the baby to Danbury Hospital and the hospital notified the police. So my question is he finds his son after an 'Extended period of time' and doesn't call 911? Sad times in our society.

    Well this dad drove to the hospital.... since I believe he (dad) should be charged with negligence, I don't think I'm picking on a victim by speculating here....

    Parents everywhere who wish for "accidents" need only look at other cases and figure out what to do differently -- I remember several pages of discussion in CH thread regarding hospitals in proximity of "discovery."

    I hope it really was an accident, but still NO excuse. None.

    I really do not understand why a parent should need to put their shoes in the back of car in order NOT to forget and possibly KILL their baby. Somehow...people need to stop multi-tasking so damned much and focus on the chores at hand. Stop texting, tweeting and taking selfies and pay attention to the road and those in your care in the vehicle. I am fed up with ideas on how to keep from doing this. It should never have happened even once, ever.

    And don't get me started on pets, as I believe this is done on purpose and without even a thought for the animal. The person wants to go to the store, hairdresser, etc and does not not want the bother of taking the pet home first, IMO.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    How does he forget a normal part of his routine? And why not call 911? Who can help him do CPR?

    I'm not getting these cases.

    not popular opinion, but.....
    i find it impossible for anyone to ever [legitimately] forget a child in a car. just completely forget of their existence. if they need something to remind them they have a child in their presence - then maybe they should not have a child in their care.

    Police are losing patience. A mom just got handcuffed for leaving her kids in the car.
