This was sent in to our page from a reader. Have you come across something similar in the Eastern Bay? What would your first reaction be if you saw babies in a hot car and unsupervised?
While going for a cigarette at the Whakatane Aquatic Center earliuer this week, I realised a mother of two had left her two toddlers in the car, right under the hot sun and with only a little gap in the window that was not enough.
I felt heart broken as the toddlers were calling mum, mum so I did the best thing I could do and that was ring the policeman.
I am still very heartbroken that could happen to children in our community. I don’t think police turned up fast enough and felt they did absolutley nothing.
NO CHILD OR CHILDREN SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT LIKE THAT UNATTENDED
