It was the month of August and Ben was enjoying his summer break. Summer was his favorite time of the year.

Apart from Christmas, the sky is a pretty color of blue. The sun is always gleaming vividly. Even though summers in Oklahoma are really hot, Ben didn’t mind. Most of his days were spent outside playing basketball with his friends. Unlike other kids, Ben enjoyed going to school. Even though he was more into basketball than math, he succeeded in getting good grades regardless. He was especially thrilled these days because he was going to begin 7th grade this September before the start of the term. It is essential to have all the school supplies and that was the agenda for today on Ben and his mother’s Nicki Fields Todo list.

Nikki knew her sons growing up and that means every year entails a new set of uniforms. She had picked up his new uniform already, so the only thing left now was a fresh pair of shoes and some stationery. Ben and Nikki stepped out of the house around noon that day. They were on their way to the Highland Plaza shopping center. Nikki had a few stores in mind where she wanted to check for Ben’s footwear.

The mother and son duo got in their car and were ready to hit the road. Having lived in this town his whole life. Ben was still amazed every time he’d glanced out the car window. Tulsa was that kind of a city and has the capability of leaving you mesmerized, even if you’ve been here your whole life. It was a city made up of wide streets and small spaces to sit and relax as people went about their day. The tall skyscrapers took up to places where once old houses used to be. The rest of the town was parked in wild spaces for people to stroll or ride their bikes. Ben loved the river that flowed in the heart of the city.

He would always pause on the bridge to look at the view before crossing it. It was Ben’s home and he cherished every part of this place. Nikki pulled up in the parking lot of the shopping center. It was packed with cars and finding a spot to park seemed impossible. After driving around the block twice, Nicki finally managed to find a spot in the last row, but this meant it was quite a walk from the car to the complex. If the parking lot was packed with cars, then it was obvious the complex would be crowded with their owners. Ben let out a sigh.

His mom was quite a chopper, and from the looks of the sparkle in her eyes, he knew he was in for a long day. An hour and a half later, both of Ben’s arms were grasping onto multiple shopping bags as his mother came out of yet another store amongst the hustle and bustle of buying things they didn’t need. Ben reminded his mother what they came looking for in the first place. His shoes. Nikki’s sheepish smile proved that she’d forgotten about it. Finally, Ben and Nikki went inside a footwear store and found him a fresh pair of shoes for school.

Ben realized that didn’t even take half as long as how much time they’ve already spent at the shopping mall. But given his mother’s love for shopping, this was bound to happen. As predicted, the walk to their car parked in the last row was exhausting. The sun was blazing in the sky, and those hundreds of shopping bags weren’t helping. Either way, the duo had no option but to push through. They were almost halfway there when Nicki’s cell phone started ringing in her pocket.

As Nikki spoke on the call, Ben waited for her to finish. The heat was getting harsher by the minute, but she seemed to be on an urgent call with a client. Ben tried to catch her attention, but she signaled for him to wait quietly. As Ben waited for his mother to be done with a call, his eyes caught sight of a parked car in the Lane next to where they were standing. It was a wine Prius and there was no other vehicle parked next to it. Ben wasn’t much into cars, so he didn’t know what it was about. The car that caught his attention. Suddenly Ben heard a strange sound coming from the car’s direction.

He wasn’t sure if it was coming from inside the car just from the same direction. And then he heard it again. He slowly got closer to the car to investigate. Nikki, who was still on the phone, was unaware of what was happening. As Ben approached the car, his eyes went wide when he realized where the sound is coming from. He signaled to his mum who assumed he was just being impatient. Nikki dropped her phone at the ground when she witnessed what happened next. Ben took a stone and started hitting the passenger side window of the car.

Nikki was horrified at her son’s actions as she sprinted towards him. He dropped the stone and started running back to their car. Nicki was stunned at what’s happening. Man has never behaved like this before smashing someone’s car. Why is this? Because it was taking her a long time on the call. She couldn’t believe her son would act so recklessly. What Nikki didn’t realize was that Ben wasn’t running away from her. He was running towards their car to find something. The twelve year old found a ratchet strap in the back of his mum’s car. He quickly grabbed the tool and came back running.

Nikki was confused about what’s happening and that’s when she heard the sound too. Nikki approached the car cautiously and peeked inside the window that Ben cracked. A gasp escaped her lips. It finally made sense why Ben had reacted the way he did. He wasn’t trying to crack the car, he was trying to break the window. Her thought process came to an abrupt halt as she saw Ben running towards her with some tool in his hand. Ben came rushing towards the car. He looked at his mother who is panicking by now and asked her to call for help. He tried to smash the window again but it just left a bigger crack than last time. Ben decided to try and break the windshield of the car with a tool. He reached around the car and started bashing the windshield. Nikki was on her phone trying to call for help. Ben swung the tool over his shoulder and hit the windshield right in the center. He kept hitting it over and over and around. This time an employee from a nearby store saw what was happening. She ran towards the car assuming Ben was trying to break into it.

That’s when Ben revealed the truth. Ben explained to the employee that he’s not breaking into the car trying to cause damage. He heard something, a sound coming from inside the car and when he went to check it was a wailing baby in the backseat. Given the extreme heat and sunlight, this car parked with the windows closed. It probably was like an oven inside. The employee, realizing the urgency of the situation, ran back to the store to see how she could help the boy. She returned with a section of a clothing rack. By this time, Ben had already stomped on the windshield, leaving a pretty huge crack in it. The employee then pulled the clothes rack in the hole and pulled out the whole windshield. Ben ran to unlock the car and Nikki rushed in to grab the baby from the back seat.

The baby was crying hysterically at this point. His face was red, but he didn’t seem to have any injuries. Despite the ordeal, however, it was undoubted that the baby escaped a pretty bad situation. As per the news, the heat index that day was 116 degrees Fahrenheit. Nikki’s call came through and the parking lot was flooded with police cars and social service workers.

The mother of the child was found shopping in a nearby store. She couldn’t be less bothered by the whole situation. All she cared to say was, Can I have my baby back? But the police refused outright. They had to investigate the case further. Unfortunately, this was not the only case that had come to the police attention. There have been several cases in which a parent left their kid behind in a hot car, unaware of the circumstances. San Jose State University’s Department of Meteorology and Climate Science indicates that between the years 1998 and 2018, a staggering amount of 792 kids have passed away due to such instances in the US alone.

Despite raising public awareness, similar cases resulting in death keep happening. In NYC, a father locked his oneYEAROLD twins in the car for several hours. The twins were found in a horrifying state with their core body temperature being 108 degrees Fahrenheit. However, in Ben’s case, paramedics weren’t sure about how long the baby was in the car when he found him, but at least he was able to save his life. Several States across the US introduced a law called Forget Me Not Vehicle Safety Act back in 2008.

The law States that children under the age of seven are not to be left alone in the car if the conditions including, but not limiting to extreme weather, inadequate ventilation, or hazardous or malfunctioning components within the vehicle present a risk to the health or safety of the unattended child. The mother was charged a fine of $250 as she violated the ForgetMeNot Vehicle Safety Act. Since this was the first time she had Dishonored the law, the police called off the social services and gave the baby back to her with a warning. And as a safety measure, the local Department of Human Services will be looking into the child’s care.

Around 21 States in the US have a Good Samaritan regulation which allows the passerby to break into a vehicle and begin a rescue if an abandoned child appears to be locked inside. Given such laws, Ben was within his rights to break into the car. He did the right thing and ended up saving the toddler’s life. Jan Pearce, an officer at Tulsa Police Department, made a statement saying within minutes that child could have passed out and become ill from an injury due to the heat.
