    At 72 he may not have been able to physically break a window, or more likely didn't think he could. I've come to find, one day when I lost my temper, that front windows actually are quite easy to break, side windows not so much.

    It's the lock, I notice that in my newer Escape, when locked the door lock mechanism that used to in all my other cars stay slightly above the opening, now recesses all the way down in and couldn't be grabbed except possibly needle nose pliers.

    Mike Flash, owner of Corvette Specialties, told 12News that the 2007 Corvette has a manual release located on the floorboard by the driver's seat. But Rogers did not know that.

    Ponsegrau says Rogers was not the only one unaware of that. He says he, along with first responders, also struggled finding away to get Rogers o out of the car.

    Ponsegrau says eventually firefighters had to break the window.

    He said, "There's is a way to get in, but it's not common knowledge."

    Hernandez says police believe her dad made a valiant effort to escape, and possibly died while looking through the car's manual. Texas man, dog die after being trapped in Corvette
    What a terribly sad story.

    It's also shocking that this story is giving people ammunition to make disgusting and not amusing partisan posts.

    Do you think this dead man is concerned about my opinion. Thank you for the spelling lesson, it's good to learn from someone who never makes a grammatical or spelling error.

    It's just Muphry's Law biting you in the ass. Well deserved, too.

    Callous and insensitive. Now let that have been taking place in New York City and someone saying one less Hillary voter and they'd be accused seven ways to Sunday as a misogynist and pages on perpetuating the "war on women" as well as being a sexist. Double standard.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Picture a black man and his dog dying in a hot car, and you posting "One less Obama voter". You'd be accused of being an insensitive, heartless, ignorant racist.

    Do you ever expect people to take responsibility for their own decisions.
    Not clearly marked, and the rescue crew couldn't find the levers either.

    Doesn't look good for Chevrolette
