    This is one of the most cruelest and terrible ways to die. Happens too often to too many children and pets. We need to do more to stop it all.

    So many similarities between this tragic death and another that happened in Washington County from just three weeks ago :-(

    Come on parents, please pay more attention to your children's whereabouts.

    "....it appears it's just a tragic accident,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Lt. Roger Price said.

    "JUST" a tragic accident? Well, Mr. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Lt. Roger Price, you need to stop feeling bad for these parents and start feeling bad for all these babies that are dying at their hands. Uphold the law, regardless of how bad you feel for these people. This is clearly negligent homicide. When my kids were little, nothing would instill panic in me more than when I lost track of my little ones. Nowadays, people panic when they lose they're iPhone - the heck with the kids.

    And I'm also tired of the phrase, "they've suffered enough." They never seem to use that expression when children kill their parents, only when parents kill they're children.

    Please don't suggest that leaving small children in a hot car in the summer is somehow normal behavior. It's not. This is very, very cruel.

    The first thing you should unload from the car when you arrive at your destination (park, home, school) are your kids!! Not the groceries, bags, boxes, etc. Unload the precious cargo first, everything else can wait. Wake them up if you have to. Don't leave them in the oven/hot car.

    Leaving your kids in the car (when it's off) during the summer is the equivalent of turning the oven on to 200 degrees F and throwing them in there and wait to see what happens.

    Parents...take an extra moment to count your kids.
    You are the only ones who can prevent this kind of thing.

    Come on people. Slow down, get your head out and pay attention. Enough of this. Goes for dogs also.

    Rest in Peace, little boy.

    Parents...please be careful and mindful of where your children are...especially in the heat of the summer...

    Please resist the urge to judge this poor family. After watching a close friend who is the most concerned mother I know go through something similar yet with a less tragic outcome my heart changed and I learned this really could happen to anyone. When it comes to children we are one misstep away from tragedy.
