RIDGEFIELD, CT -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 -- ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (OTC Pink: ATWT) (PINKSHEETS: ATWT), a US-based child safety company, today sadly announced that yet another child has died after being abandoned in a hot car on a summer day with sweltering temperatures.
Ridgefield, CT police said that they were notified by Danbury Hospital staff at 6 pm on Monday that an unidentified toddler died after being left unattended in a hot car for an "extended period of time." The exact cause of death remains under investigation, and police would not say if anyone is facing charges.
ATWEC Technologies, Inc. sells its proprietary Kiddie Systems vehicle safety products for buses and vans to directly combat and prevent these tragedies. The Company has recently developed a new product, its Kiddie Watch unit, which is sold to consumers for use in their cars and SUV's. The unique alarm system warns drivers to check all seats for children before leaving and/or locking the vehicle.
Connecticut residents are wondering how these incidents keep happening. "It's very sad. I can't believe it," said Rachida Hassaine of Ridgefield. Within the last month, six Connecticut caretakers have been charged with leaving children in unattended vehicles. On Tuesday, three cases of children being left in hot cars were reported.
Alex Wiley, President of ATWT, stated, "ATWEC has been fighting to stop these tragedies for years at the school and day care level, but an even bigger problem is the unsuspecting parent who leaves the child in the car. Our new Kiddie Watch system will warn drivers to check their vehicles, and will be a cost-effective solution for saving children's lives." ATWEC hopes to have the product ready for market by year-end 2014.
