The hot weather these days is no joke, it is so hot that it is dangerous to stay in the car under the scorching sun.
Just recently, a mentally-disabled Japanese man died after being left inside a service van of the facility called Cosmos Earth in Ageo, Saitama Prefecture for 6 hours.
The 19-year-old reportedly died of heat stroke as he was left inside the vehicle under the scorching sun with the temperature around 33.1°C (91.58°F) for the day.
The police discovered the man unconscious in the back of the van at 3.25 pm, just before the facility closed at 4 pm. Welfare facility staff likely forgot to help the 19-year-old man out of the can when assisting four other facility users in leaving the vehicle around 9 am.
When he was found, rescuers recorded his body temperature at 41.4°C, he was rushed to the hospital for treatment but died shortly after.
Kenji Otsuka, a caretaker of the welfare facility, told reporters,
“I apologize to him and to his family from the bottom of my heart.”
