Transcript for Child Rescued From Hot Car Caught on Camera
Now we have a new warning for parents this morning after we saw this shocking video out of Texas. It shows a child being rescued from a car on a steamy Houston day. The mom was in a store shopping. We have heard about several of these cases this summer and so happy to have our sister network fusion on the story this morning.miwn Pleasure to be with you. Parents nowadays have so much going on, so many distractions, errands, this morning the case out of Houston should serve as a reminder to mops and dads, thank god in baby is all right but it only takes a few minutes for the summer heat to turn deadly. Overnight this boy crying found locked in a car in a Houston mall parking lot. Concerned security guards rushing to help the infant, pushing the slightly open window down just enough to unlock the SUV door. His mom later came out of this store. She is seen begging for her son. This morning she's behind bars charged with child abandonment. She has not yet entered a plea. This incident occurring just a day after a new twist in the Connecticut hot car death of 15-month-old Benjamin sites. His death now ruled a homicide. Authorities from the medical examiner's office confirming to ABC news the baby boy suffered hyperthermia caused by environmental exposure. Ben was an angel. He laughed every day, spied every day. Reporter: The toddler's dad Kyle was supposed to drop him off at day care but forgot. Instead leaving his son inside a sweltering car. Even reportedly driving back to the day care to pick up his son before discovering his body. No charges have been filed against Mr. Seitz. Homicide just means the death of one person at the hands of another. That's not always a crime. And if the authorities here believe this was just a horrible mistake, he may not be charged. Reporter: Benjamin's mom Lindsay now fighting to warn other parents. We're definitely not going to give up. Even if it's something as simple as being there for other parents. Reporter: And her story can really happen to anyone. Paula, according to a study, 14% of parents, 14% have admitted to accide accidentally leaving their kids unattended in a hot car? That's just those who admit. We get so distracted and think this will never happen. Put something in the backseat that you know you have to retrieve whether it's your wallet, your purse, a flip phone to make sure that baby is safe. Makes a lot of sense. The more we keep talking about it, the more awareness we'll raise.
