Krogers in Houston, TX

Received Thursday, December 13, 2007
I was leaving Kroger's today, (12/11) on Kykendahl at Louetta in Houston, TX. My daughter noticed a dog sitting in the back window of a car. When I looked I also saw a boy in the car, probably 4 or 5yrs old. With the high being in the high 80's today, plus the fact that the car was off, I immediately called 911 and they sent an officer. About 5 mins later a woman returned to the car, I told her "Just so you know the police are on their way." She said ok and then sped off. The police arrived roughly 3mins later. I had given 911 the license plate number, but did not write it down so I can't give that info here. I do remember it was a green Kia, it didn't have a model name, just KIA. I'm not sure if the police tracked down the owner or not, hopefully they did, I just wanted to email about it just in case they didn't.I'm not 100% positive the woman was a nanny, but the nanny was Jamaican and the boy was very very white skinned. I don't recall what the nanny wore, but the boy had on blue jeans and a t-shirt with a tonka truck on it. The dog was a brown full-sized wiener dog.This disgusts me. Even my 6yr old, who was with me, knows it's not safe to leave kids in the car. She told me "He could have gone to heaven. She's not a very good mommy." If a 6yr old realizes this, what is wrong with this grown woman?

*I sent this on 12/11 but it was returned to me by the mailer demon.

Ugh.

At least you know your little girl won't be one of the people contributing stupidity to the world.

I hope the cops caught the woman.

My hubby is a former police officer and he used to get calls like this all the time. More often dogs in cars but also sometimes kids. When will people learn?

Thank you for actually calling the authorities about this OP! I truly hope they tracked this woman down, if she was my nanny I would have fired her so fast! Way too many babies and children are dying this way each year! It's bad enough with the dog, but the little boy too? People have no common sense these days...

GOOD JOB OP!

Leaving a child in a car is just STUPID. What a horrible nanny.

I hope the cops contacted the parents!
