Okay this happened the other day and I just can't stop thinking about it ... I was going to my insurance place and it's in the same parking lot as an amscot. Well I park and get out and notice the window is slightly cracked in the car next to me. Then I realize there is two young kids in carseats in the backseat sleeping. I freaked out I've seen so much on TV about how bad that is and how the heat here in fl could shut down a kids kidney in 10 minutes . I went around to my car and got my daughter out then I stood there for a few minutes to see if the kids parent would come out from where ever they were . I waited five minutes and no one came . I started getting worried maybe there weren't sleeping they were unconscious I didn't know how long they'd been in there so I called the police ... While on the phone with the police their dad came out . He started screaming at me and saying he was only gone five minutes and how dare I do that (but that's a lie cause I was there longer than five minutes) he said I needed to mind my business. I tried explaining too him how it's illegal in fl to leave a child in the car no matter what but he just kept screaming. Te officer I was on the phone with told me not to talk to him and they were in their way to handle it so I left and that was that . The thing is if I had seen later on the news one of those kids died I would have never forgiven myself for not calling. Like I said I had no clue how long the dad was gone and when he was coming back.. So I guess now I'm wondering if I did the rigt thing. Would anyone else have called or just minded their business ?
