An enraged police officer was seen lecturing a defiant mother who had locked her two young children inside a hot car for 20 minutes while she grocery shopped.
Police, firemen, and ambulances were called to the scene of a Vancouver grocery store after officials received 911 calls about children being left in a Lexus on Monday.
A policeman was seen passionately scolding the mother, who stood looking defiant with her arms crossed, in a clip that was posted to Facebook on Thursday.
The officer asked the unidentified woman ‘what kind of parent’ she was for leaving her six-year-old girl and a three-year-old boy trapped inside a car for 20 minutes.
He added to her: ‘You don’t seem to understand the danger you put your children in. The windows were up – it’s hot out. Your children could have died.’
