Video: Cops’ new film warns against leaving kids in cars in UAE
Leaving youngsters unattended inside vehicles while shopping — or for any other reason — is a crime punishable by law, Abu Dhabi Police have warned.
The Abu Dhabi Police have released an animated short film, reiterating a warning for parents: Never leave kids inside cars, no matter what.
In their new awareness video, the police showed how forgetting children inside vehicles for long periods could lead to suffocation, loss of consciousness and even death because of extreme heat and lack of oxygen.
Leaving youngsters unattended inside vehicles while shopping — or for any other reason — is a crime punishable by law, Abu Dhabi Police have warned. This is considered negligence.
"Families should not depend on others when stepping out of their vehicles. Do not leave children in the back seats whenever they’re feeling drowsy or asleep, and don’t assign older siblings to take care of younger children," the police said.
There have been several cases in the past where children suffocated after being left inside parked cars as their parents went shopping, they added.
In the latest incident in November 2019, the Abu Dhabi Police reported two toddlers who died after the vehicle they were left in caught fire. The authorities have urged parents to always take good care of their children.
