    Title pretty much says it all, except - mom left them (plural) in the dark Jeep, while she went for haircut.
    Oh, mom asked bystanders/rescuers NOT to CALL LE.
    And they did not.

    Appears someone recorded video and posted.
    If kids ages were given, I missed it.
    Short vid clip and story at link.

    Hoping that Mom learned something from this; she might have learned more if bystanders had called LE.
    Thankful that ppl passing by noticed the kids and took action.

    Some 2012 news I don't recall seeing back then.

    In 2012, mom Kim Brooks left her 4 y/o son in car,
    50 deg.F, 5 min errand, w car parked close to store's front door. No harm to child.
    Passerby took pix w cellphone, provided to LE, who contacted mom.
    Mom was charged w contrib to delinq. of minor, did 100 hrs of comm service, etc.

    Mom's explanation, dtd June 2014

    There is a LOT of incorrect information in this story....(Jezebel doesn't really qualify as msm by the way) however these articles explain the truth....the mom did NOT go for a haircut....she took kids into a postal store for an errand. When she was re-loading them into the car the doors accidentally shut and locked. She ran back inside to ask for help and a postal store employee got a hammer to break the window out. The MOM crawled through the window to get the keys and unlock the child locks on the door. The whole incident was less than 5 minutes in length.

    Here's an actual msm report on the incident

    Raeann,

    Thanks for your post w MSM link.
    From Jezebel (yes, non-MSM) I followed the link to
    http://www.khou.com/news/local/Shop...car-while-mother-got-a-haircut-267107111.html
    so saw an earlier version from same news site as your updated link.
    Since that article, khou corrected/updated the earlier article.

    Glad that mom and kids are okay. Raeann, thank you again.

    I just wanted to tell everyone that you don't need a hammer...the best quickest thing to use to break it is a car antenna. Hold one end on the glass and pull back on the other end...hard....then let it go. The spring back easily breaks the glass.
