SAN ANTONIO — Child Protective Services is issuing a plea to the community to watch out for children during the devastating heat wave in our area.
In a news release, CPS said their concern for Bexar County children continues to be drownings and children left alone in hot cars.
The agency is re-introducing a new version of the 2014 "Be on the Lookout (BOLO)" posters and continuing efforts to distribute the warnings throughout the county at multiple locations. Bexar County has printed thousands of posters, and the city has already placed them in parks and at swimming pool locations.
CPS stresses that keeping children safe from harm is a community effort.
The agency's plea comes after a 3-year-old boy died after being left in a hot day care center van for 3 1/2 hours in northwest Houston and another 'hot car' incident in Connecticut left a 4-year-old boy dead and his 2-year-old brother hospitalized.
