Man, Dog Die After Getting Trapped Inside Hot Corvette

Police say a 72-year-old Texas man and his dog died of apparent heat exhaustion after not being able to get out of his locked sports car.

Police in the Southeast Texas city of Port Arthur believe James Rogers did not know how to manually unlock the 2007 Corvette he recently purchased.

Maj. Raymond Clark says Rogers on Monday stopped at a Waffle House for coffee. Clark says Rogers went out to the parking lot to check on his dog and left his cellphone in the restaurant.

Investigators believe a cable became loose after Rogers got in and shut the door, with no power to operate the horn or locks. The man and his dog were found dead about four hours later by another restaurant patron. Temperatures outside reached the 90s.

Rogers’ daughter, Tricia Hernandez said it’s “heartbreaking” her dad’s dream car would claim his life.

I was clueless about these issues.  Many years ago my first husband and I owned several Corvettes.  Here is what to do.  Example of 2011 Corvette and how to get in or out when there is no power.

What a way to go.  And unnecessarily so, to boot.

So "ignorance is NOT bliss," after all, and "What you don't know WILL hurt you," as cases in point that disprove the old aphorisms.
