Summer of course is a great time for family activities; but it is always important to be careful in the hot weather.
Yes temperatures are rising and schedules are busy, that’s means it’s easy to leave a child or animal behind in your car while running errands.
Knox County Coroner Brian Hagen says parents must be aware of potentially dangerous heat related situations.
“If you could just take a few minutes to look around, and say, hey wait a minute, where’s my kid, where’s my child take some time,” says Knox County Coroner Brian Hagen.
Bystanders are also encouraged to be on the lookout for any unattended children or pets.
And if needed, they should call 911 .
