The inside temperature of the vehicle was over 30 degrees and the child, 2 years old, was removed from the carseat by Squamish Fire and they were assessed by BCEHS.

Temperatures can raise to lethal levels in a short period of time and we have already seen one tragedy in the Lower Mainland during this summer season.
