“Do you understand what you have done? Your children could have died!”
“You have a firetruck, an ambulance, and two police cars here because YOU left your kids in there and you think that’s ‘fine’.”
She seemed to think the cop was overreacting. Notice her body language while he’s setting her straight.
An enraged police officer was seen lecturing a defiant mother who had locked her two young children inside a hot car for 20 minutes while she grocery shopped.
Police, firemen and ambulances were called to the scene of a Vancouver grocery store after officials received 911 calls about children being left in a Lexus on Monday.
A policeman was seen passionately scolding the mother, who stood looking defiant with her arms crossed, in a clip that was posted to Facebook on Thursday.
The officer asked the unidentified woman ‘what kind of parent’ she was for leaving her six-year-old girl and a three-year-old boy trapped inside a car for 20 minutes.
Temperatures in Vancouver for Monday were around 68 degrees Fahrenheit or around 20 degrees Celsius.
Although a seemingly mild temperature, the inside of a previously air conditioned vehicle can reach up to 122F or 50C in 20 minutes of sitting in the summer sun.
On average, 37 child die each year in the US from heatstroke caused by being left in a hot car.
