Burlington Police: Person Will Be Charged After Leaving Child in Hot Car
The Burlington Police Department said a child was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons after being left in a hot car.
At about 1:30 p.m., police said that they had two separate calls going on at the same time. One of the calls involved a child left in a car, and the other involved a dog left in a car.
"Seriously, some people still don't know that this is dangerous," police tweeted.
In a follow up tweet shortly after, Burlington Police said the child was en route to the hospital with their mother as a precaution.
Police said they would file a 51A, which is a report of child abuse or neglect. In addition, they added that criminal charged would be brought forward via a summons at a later date.
In their final tweet on the incident, police said the case is still under investigation and no more information would be given at the time.
Burlington's Animal Control Officer shared a link on Tuesday afternoon that showed how dangerous it can be to leave dogs in hot cars.
