As temperatures begin to rise, officials from six state agencies are reminding Georgians to never leave children unattended in vehicles. At a press conference Thursday, officials demonstrated how quickly the temperature can rise inside of a closed vehicle.
A state agency has issued its first-ever yearly report on deaths of children involved in the child protection system. It found unusually high numbers of deaths in some parts of Georgia. The report by the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services analyzed the causes of the deaths and identified ways the agency could improve both its prevention and responses to deaths.
