Parker County Sheriff’s investigators were called to the 200 block of Rambling Loop, west of Lake Weatherford, where two children were found unresponsive by their mother from suspected extreme heat exposure after being locked inside a vehicle.

Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said the incident was reported shortly after 4 p.m., when the temperatures had reached approximately 96 degrees.

The children were identified as a 16 month-old boy and a girl who had celebrated her 2nd birthday in late February.

The mother reported both of the children “took off.”

The mother then reported she searched the area for the children and later found them locked inside a small four-door vehicle on the property, adding the children had entered the vehicle and locked themselves inside.

The mother reportedly broke a window of the vehicle to gain entry, finding both children unresponsive.

Emergency medical personnel were immediately contacted. Both children were pronounced deceased at 4:33 p.m.

“This case is in the early stages of the investigation,” Sheriff Fowler said. “Any comment regarding this case at this time, would be an assumption, until all of the facts are gathered.”

Sheriff Fowler added that incidents involving any child are always difficult, but this call was especially heartbreaking with the unfortunate deaths of two children.
