Passerby helps save baby left alone in hot auto

Volusia County Corrections

Volusia County Corrections

- In body camera video from a Volusia County sheriff's deputy, you see Meagan Burgess, 33, react as she learns she left her baby boy inside a hot vehicle.

In a post on the sheriff's office page, the law enforcement official is sitting in the driver's seat of his patrol auto and talks to the camera, telling followers about a harrowing incident that went down in Orange City on Tuesday. The door was unlocked and witnesses opened it and found the 8-month-old boy was okay.

Susan Auriemma, vice president of the advocacy group KidsAndCars.org, says it's not uncommon for parents to lose track of their kids in the vehicle.

Deputies say Burgess child was locked inside her vehicle for only a few minutes before another woman, Jessica Kaiser, saw the child, was able to open an unlocked door to filter in cooler air, and called 911.

The sheriff then addressed the heat in a vehicle without air conditioning and the responsibility of a parent.

Burgess has been arrested and charged with child neglect.

In the video, the mother says, through tears, that she is a nurse and she has heard of other people leaving their kids in cars, but can't believe this happened to her.

He told the Sun: "I had a heart attack, doesn't anybody care? When you're a royal, you have to give things up". Munn recently acted in the new Predator movie whose director, Shane Black , once dated Meghan's sister.

"It happened", a responder replies.

The Sheriff's Department uploaded a video to their Facebook page thanking the passerby, Jessica Kaiser.

"We avoided a disaster", he says.

Had Kaiser not noticed the child in the backseat, the boy would have been alone in the vehicle for at least 24 minutes and 'We would be discussing the tragedy of an eight-month-old child, ' Chitwood said.

Chitwood revealed that Burgess told investigators that she thought she had dropped her three children off at her father's home, before going to the store to run some errands. That little boy is in good health. A judge said that Burgess could be released from jail without bond, but she cannot have any contact with her 8-month-old boy while the incident remains under investigation.

Burgess was in court Wednesday and The Florida Department of Children and Families was notified, authorities said.

The group says 27 children have died this year from heat stroke, compared to 43 last year.
