Group hopes to build park in memory of GA toddler who died in hot car
Child safety advocates and others following the case of a Georgia toddler who died in a hot car are raising money in hopes of building a park in his memory.
Police have said 22-month-old Cooper Harris died after being left inside an SUV while his father was at work at a Home Depot office in suburban Atlanta. The child's father, who told police he forgot Cooper was in the car June 18, faces murder and child cruelty charges.
The Marietta Daily Journal reports that the group known as Cooper's Tree House Foundation has started an online campaign to try and raise $250,000 to build a park either in Marietta or Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Harris is a native of Tuscaloosa and moved to Georgia in 2012 to work for Home Depot.
