In the heat of summertime, cars can go from outdoor temperatures (which are already dangerously hot sometimes) to scorching in a matter of minutes. Leaving pets or children in the car unattended poses a real danger and sadly has resulted in deaths.
In Florida on a hot May day, two deputies noticed a puppy left unattended in a car, panting and breathing heavily. It was 92 degrees outside and at those temperatures, it only takes 10 minutes for the interior temperature to reach 111 degrees and 30 minutes to reach 126 degrees. Since the puppy was in distress, the deputies smashed the windows and saved the little guy.
