    Coincidently, the Port Huron to Mackinac (sailboat) race is this weekend. My sister lives south of Port Huron in Marine City.

    A 5-year-old boy with Down Syndrome was found dead inside a neighbor’s car about seven hours after he was reported missing.

    ------------------------------------

    Port Huron Police Capt. Jeff Baker said investigators believe the death was an accident, that the boy climbed into the vehicle and succumbed to the heat.

    I am so relieved it was an accident. I did not want to believe anyone murdered this sweet boy.
    I hope questions are asked as to why it took 7 hours to find him in that car though. That is not okay.
    When are people going to learn that water and hot cars need to be the first two places you check!!!
