A Vancouver police officer berated a mother for leaving her children in a hot car while she went grocery shopping on the afternoon of Monday, July 3. Police said they received multiple emergency calls about her two children, aged 3 and 6, who were said to be in distress while alone inside the woman’s Lexus car as the alarm went off. A full emergency response, including police and fire services were dispatched to the grocery store on Grandview Highway.

The policeman asked the unidentified woman 'what kind of parent' she was for leaving her little children trapped inside a car for 20 minutes. “You don't seem to understand the danger you put your children in. The windows were up – it's hot out. Your children could have died.” the officer added to the mother:

Police said that the mother had been inside the grocery store for 20 minutes while her children were locked inside the car on the hot day. The file has been turned over to the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

Young children should not be left in cars no matter what, especially on a hot days! Even with those windshield sunshades, the car can get extremely hot! Good thing some good samaritan called for help when they saw the kids in distress.

Hopefully this mom now knows her lesson.

      Good on the policeman who gave her what for, for leaving her children in a hot car! She deserved that, and more.

      Good job on the part of the police officer. NO CHILD should be left inside a car while going anywhere. During the summer months, there is the danger of the heat, and during any time of year, there is ALWAYS a chance that someone could come by a kidnap the child! Parents like this one need to be educated in the dangers of leaving your child unattended.
