Georgia child dies after being left in car by grandparents

A report from Georgia says an 11-month-old child died after being left in a hot car by grandparents for two hours. A TV report indicates confusion on the part of grandparents on which had responsibility for the child.

A sheriff's spokesman said the matter remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.

The case is similar to that of the death of 18-month-old Thomas Naramore, also apparently left accidentally in his father's care on a hot day in July in Hot Springs. A special prosecutor continues to review whether a charge will be filed in the death against Circuit Judge Wade Naramore.

From the report:

The infant was the 19th child to die in the United States in 2015 because of being left inside a hot car, according to the Department of Meteorology & Climate Science at San Jose State University in California.

Widespread attention was brought to the issue in 2014 after a Georgia father spent an entire day at the office while his nearly 2-year-old son was still strapped in his car seat. Justin Ross Harris has pleaded not guilty to felony murder charges in the death of 22-month-old Cooper Harris.

I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
