Texas elementary school teacher allegedly leaves her 1-year-old in the faculty parking lot in 84-degree weather.
You know the horrific headline: Parent leaves kid unattended in a too-hot car, and as a result, the child dies tragically. I have to shake my head and ask why such senseless exists, yet when temperatures increase, it’s a story that surfaces way too often.
