On another day of temperatures in the 90's, officers in Fishers were on patrol Thursday in retail areas and neighborhoods.
On July 7, with record breaking triple-digit heat, a 4-month-old Greenfield child died. On that same day in Fishers, a 16-month-old girl had been left in a car for an hour while her mother, 30-year-old Meg Trueblood, allegedly shopped.
Officer Edgar Holmes with the Fishers Police Department smashed the car window to get the child out. She's said to be doing fine now, but Officer Holmes is angry at parents who don't get the message.
"I don't know what it's gonna take for the message to hit home, but it's very very important.
"As you can imagine, I was frustrated and angry, but I know that the care for the child was more important then my anger at the time."
On July 7, the temperature reached 105 degrees at just before 4 p.m. The little girl was rescued at 3:30 p.m.Trueblood faces two felony counts of neglect of a dependent. Her trial is expected to begin in November.
