CHAMPAIGN COUNTY — Nationally, there have been reports of 23 children dying after being trapped in hot cars. Two of those happened just last weekend.
But, a local company is working to make sure it doesn’t happen here. If you’re stuck outside and your child or pet is locked inside, Tatman’s Towing will come open your door for free.
Even with 70-degree temperatures, the inside of a car can reach a dangerous 120-degrees. That’s why management says they act quickly.
The tow company says it recommends drivers keep their cellphones in the back seat to avoid leaving anyone behind but, if you do forget, just give them a call.
