Child in Griesheim (Darmstadt-Dieburg district) locked in the car in the heat: the fire brigade usually breaks the window

Time and again, emergency services have to move out to rescue children and pets from extremely hot vehicles. Fire department head of operations Sven Henrich said *: "If a person is in acute danger, we break a window". Basically, you shouldn't leave children or pets in the car. The reason: "The heat development in a closed car can be so strong , even at relatively low summer temperatures , that after a short time there is a danger to life," says Henrich.

The legal situation is also clear: if parents leave their child in the hot car , this can be seen as physical harm and child abuse. A dog is usually a criminal offense of cruelty to animals, but it can also only be assessed as an administrative offense - nevertheless a fine of up to 25,000 euros is due.
