Transcript for New Warning For Parents Driving With Children
We're going to turn next on a Friday night to a warning for families across this country. At least four times in just the last week a car stolen with a child inside. Parents looking away for just a moment, and that's all it takes. Here's ABC's Clayton Sandell. Reporter: A car thief speeding off with maria Castro's minivan near Los Angeles last night bad enough. But even worse, her 1-year-old son Caleb was still inside. I just want my baby back. Reporter: Stolen cars and kids make for a terrifying mix. Just this week in Florida a 6-year-old girl was taken. In Philadelphia a 6-year-old boy. Nothing happened to him. He slept through the entire thing. Reporter: The adults say they left their kids in the car for just a moment. Police warn that's all it takes. What do you tell parents who don't want to take their kid out of the car? You know, we always tell them it only takes a couple of minutes. Unhook them from their seat belt, take them with you inside the store, better safe than sorry. Reporter: Luckily all the kids were found safe. Hey, sweetheart. You okay? Come here. Reporter: Including this shivering 3-year-old girl in new Mexico, left stranded in freezing temperatures. Tonight little Caleb is home too. Yes, I got him. When he saw me he was like -- oh, my god, he was happy. Reporter: Clayton Sandell, ABC news, Los Angeles.
