Wednesday Jul 1st, 2015
With one heat-related death in the city already this summer, city officials are issuing an important warning to parents. Two-year-old Leasia Carter was the city’s first heat-related death of 2015. Police say she’d been left inside a scalding hot car for nearly 16 hours by her father, 31-year-old Wilbert Leon Carter, who is now charged with murder. “This is a preventable tragedy, and it should never occur again,” said City Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen.
