. Kenneth Robinson is the 31-year-old father who owes one sharp-eyed co-worker a debt of gratitude, a huge debt of gratitude.
Robinson told police he was distracted going to work and forgot to drop his two year-old son at the daycare center.
A co-worker noticed the child in the car and immediately called police, requesting an ambulance:
"I need an ambulance at Patton-Chestnut and Binder ASAP. A child was left in the car," the co-worker said. "Is he breathing? Is he breathing? Yes, he's breathing."
The ABC video
describes the incident and call with police.
While the temperature inside the car was 100 degrees, the boy was still alert. The boy was rushed to the hospital and the police arrested the father.
Thirty-three children died in hot cars last year, and so far this year, six have died when left in hot vehicles.
It was only yesterday that a DJ report of an 11 month-old
was found deceased in similar circumstances in Louisiana.
