  • 2 kid in 2 days.

    A child died Thursday after being left in a hot car while a parent was at work, authorities said.

    Harris County Sheriff's deputies were called to the parking lot of North Cypress Medical Center at 21214 Northwest Freeway about 4 p.m. and found the child, believed to be 4 or 5, dead in a vehicle.

    The incident remains under investigation and no further information was immediately available.

    A 3-year-old boy died Wednesday after his grandmother left him in a hot car for about 10 hours.

    Investigators said she was supposed to take him to day care, but forgot.

    Webster Police said Thursday a Harris County grand jury will consider whether to charge the grandmother in the incident.

    How in the hell can you forget a kid that old in the car? They make noise, talk, move and snore. They strap these kids in when they get into that car....


    I am more then pizzed. I think invol. manslaughter would hit home here.
    God I feel for these kids. They COOKED. (at this time it is 97 degrees so those cars had to be 120)

      One was at work, and the other left the kid there for 10 hours?! Wow... I'm glad these two will be in jail for a good long while, utterly pathetic!

          I ran on one of these calls once. One of the hardest calls I have ever been on. Trust me, there are plenty of tools on a fire engine that I would have liked to use on dad at the time.

            we are now up to three

            As the temperatures rose in his mother's locked truck on Thursday, authorities said the little boy managed to free himself from his car seat and climb to the front of the vehicle, where he put a key in the ignition.

            But the 3-year-old died before he could escape the sweltering heat that soon overtook him in the truck's cabin, the Harris County Sheriff's Office said.

            Cameron Thomas Boone, who celebrated his third birthday last month, was the second child within less than 24 hours to die in the Houston area after a loved one drove to work, locked the vehicle and forgot about them. The boys were the third and fourth children to die in hot vehicles in Harris County this year.

            On Thursday, authorities said Cameron was trapped in his mother's truck — parked in a hospital parking lot — for nine hours before the woman discovered her son's body. The frantic mother used a rock to break the back windshield of the truck because the woman was unable to use the remote door locks with a key already in the ignition, authorities said.

            In both the northwest Harris County case and Wednesday's incident in Webster, authorities say the driver forgot to take the child to daycare and drove straight to work leaving the child secured in the back seat of the vehicle.

            In Thursday's case, authorities said the boy's father usually dropped him off at a daycare facility on Thursdays. It was unclear why he didn't make the trip Thursday morning, said Lt. John Denholm, Harris County Sheriff's Office.

            The mother arrived at work at North Cypress Medical Center at 21214 Northwest Freeway about 6:30 a.m. and parked her white four-door Chevrolet pickup truck in the parking lot near Huffmeister.

            When she walked out to the truck after her shift ended at 3:30 p.m., she found her son dead in the front seat of the truck.

            Temperatures reached 97 degrees Thursday.

            "Texas sun is very unforgiving. Temperatures inside cars escalate to fatal levels quickly," Denholm said.

            Evidence indicates the boy spent his last minutes fighting to escape the unbearable heat.

            "He was able to free himself from his car seat and climb to the front. We also found a key in the ignition, like he was trying to start the car, maybe open a window," Denholm said.

            After breaking the back windshield, the mother grabbed her son and ran into the nearby emergency room where he was pronounced dead.

            Hospital employees paused when walking to their cars late Thursday, some unaware of the tragedy, some in shock.

            "I can't believe it — that poor child. That poor woman," said a nurse who asked that her name not be used.

            "It's tragic — there's no other way to put it," said Denholm, who declined to comment on whether the mother may face criminal charges.

            A Harris County grand jury will consider whether to charge the grandmother of the other 3-year-old boy who died Wednesday after being left in a car for about 10 hours.

            The grandmother was leaving work about 5:45 p.m. at 421 E. NASA Parkway when she noticed the boy in the backseat.

            Webster police said she apparently forgot to take him to day care.

            Capt. Tom Claunch said his department will continue its investigation into the incident before submitting a complete report to the grand jury.

            Child Protective Services spokeswoman Estella Olguin said that deviation from routine is a common denominator in such cases.

            "Anytime you are doing something out of the ordinary you have to be extra vigilant. Put your purse, cell phone or wallet in the back with the baby," Olguin said.

            She also said parents can keep a stuffed animal in the car seat and place the stuffed animal in the front seat when a child is in the backseat as a visual reminder.

            "We all get distracted and have a lot on our minds so it's important that parents do anything they can do as a reminder that there is a child in the backseat," Olguin said.

            Chronicle reporter Ruth Rendon contributed to this report.

              Put the parents in the chair, see how they like being cooked alive.

                I have a four year old I don't see how anyone can forget their children in the car. Shes my life. The sad thing is that most of them will get off with probation or not even be tried. the only one I ever felt sorry for was the lady that was getting married spent hours at the salon and went to leave realized that her son was dead in the car. The thing was she never put him in there. He had snuck in. But What I don't understand is whoever was watching him wasn't doing a good job because they never called anyone. Its kind of a fishhy story. But if she didn't know I do feel sorry if she did than she should be tried.

                  How can you forget a kid in the car?! I would never even consider leaving my cousins in the car when I run in the store to grab some milk. Maybe I'm weird but everytime I lock my car I look in the front and back seats to make sure that there is nothing lying out and I'm not forgetting something. Did these people just lock the car without so much as a glance in the back seat. Those poor kids, I can only imagine.
                  Life is like a bullet shot out of a gun, it goes quick and you can't take it back....so make sure your aim is good.
