June 23, 2004

Albany -  One year old Evan Walker died trapped in the sweltering heat of an SUVnear Atlanta yesterday.

Other kids are dying across the country as a result of being left in hot cars. Authorities and health experts say many people just aren't getting the message that kids in hot cars can be a fatal combination. Michelle Edwards, an Albany mother said "I know how it feels to be in a car with no air and just sitting there and how hot it gets. That's just very dangerous for a child."

Authorities encourage people to call 911 or contact security if they see a child left in a hot car.
