WOODLAND HILLS, CA – A 63-year-old US Postal Service worker was found dead in her truck on day temperatures reached 117 degrees.

Peggy Frank was a 28-year veteran with the U.S. Postal Service with only two years left until retirement.

Friday was her first day back on the job after taking two months off to recover from a broken ankle. At around 3 p.m., Frank was found unresponsive inside her USPS truck.

Despite attempts to revive her, Frank would be pronounced dead at the hospital. Although an actual cause of death has not been determined, heat exhaustion is a definite possibility.

Temperatures that day reached 117 degrees and USPS mail delivery trucks are not equipped with air conditioners.

Frank had also suffered from heat exhaustion in May of last year.

A US Postal Service spokeswoman said ‘safety is our top priority for all our employees’ and that mail carriers are always reminded to keep hydrated, wear weather-appropriate attire, bring along plenty of water and ice, and stay in the shade.

But Frank’s family says they need to do more to look out for their workers.…

James RodgersPORT ARTHUR, TX – Investigators say 72-year-old James Rogers died inside his Corvette, along with his dog, after he was unable to open the doors or windows of his car.

After Rogers finished eating at a Waffle House last week where he is a regular, he got into his 2007 Corvette with his dog, Leia.

What Rogers didn’t know was that a loose battery cable was the reason why his car would not start, and also why he was unable to unlock the doors or roll down the windows. Even worse, Rogers had accidentally left his phone in the restaurant.

Eventually another customer noticed Rogers unresponsive in the car and they, along with store employees, tried to get the doors open. Firefighters arrived and busted out a window, but by then it was too late. Both Rogers and his dog would die from heat exhaustion.

What makes this story so tragic is that had Rogers read the manual to his car, he would have known that the Corvette is equipped with a manual release on the driver’s side of the car that bypasses the battery and will unlock the doors.…

Angela RandolphARDMORE, OK – Police have arrested the parents of a three-week old girl who died from heat exhaustion after the idiots took her on a 1,100-mile road trip in a van that had no air conditioning and only one working window.

On Tuesday, 28-year-old Christopher Randolph and his 26-year-old wife, Angela Randolph, were making a 15-hour drive from Columbus, Ohio, to Ringling, Oklahoma with their newborn, Hanna, and their 15-month-old child.

With temperatures climbing to 100 degrees, the couple pulled their rolling oven into a gas station 20 miles from their destination. It was there that they noticed Hanna was no longer breathing.

She was rushed to the hospital, but pronounced dead from complications from heat exposure. The couple were arrested on Wednesday and charged with child neglect causing death. Their 15-month-old was taken into protect custody.

This means that the 15-month old has something in common with two of his other, living siblings who were also removed from Christopher and Angela back in 2010.

Not sure why the couple look so glum in their mugshots.…

ELEPHANT BUTTE, NM – A couple are in a bit of trouble after making the real bad decision of locking their three children in a small camper so they could jet ski for a couple hours. Destynie Defrates, 21, and Aaron Montoya, 23, now face child abuse charges after park rangers found their children, ages 1, 2 and 3, inside the mobile oven parked at Elephant Butte Lake. While their parents enjoyed the lake in the 98-degree temperatures, their three kids cooked inside a camper with no air-conditioning or water. Had it not been for the Good Samaritan who called 911 the kids would have likely died, according to park rangers who were too pissed to go on camera. After breaking a window to get to them, the children were taken to the hospital, treated for dehydration, then released into state custody. Their parents were taken to jail on three felony counts of child abuse with a cash-only bail set at $30,000. What’s up with spelling a kid’s name “Destynie”? That name ranks up there with “Bambi,” “Candy,” “Brandi,” and “Lexxxie” when trying to increase the chances of your daughter making a living naked on a pole (thanks for all the hard work you do, ladies), or in jail after turning her three kids into fish sticks.…
