Missouri Bill Targets Rescuing Children From Hot Cars
So far in 2016, 11 children nationwide have died from being left in hot cars. On Wednesday, an 8-month-old baby died in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, from the heat in a car.
Last summer, a woman rescued a baby from a hot car in a Merriam parking lot. That’s what prompted Missouri legislators to propose a good Samaritan bill.
