Hot car deaths involving children can be prevented, advocacy group says

Several seconds of silence overwhelmed Janette Fennell when she was asked about the country’s latest hot car death involving a child earlier this week.

A 2-year-old girl was found unresponsive after being left in a car for about 14 hours outside her parents’ home in Prosperity, Florida on Tuesday, authorities said.

Deputies reportedly noticed the girl was warm to the touch. Paramedics said the toddler’s temperature was 107 degrees. Her parents now face charges of child neglect and possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The tragedy was already the fourth hot car death in the United States this year.
