Miami Cop's Wife Dies After Being Trapped in His Squad Car
A 56-year-old woman lost her life from the heat when she got trapped in the backseat of her husband's police cruiser in their driveway. The backseat of police cars are known as "the cage" because of their design to keep detainees from escaping or harming the driver. Authorities say she was locked in the backseat for four hours in the SUV, and fingerprints reveal she clawed at the windows in a panic trying to escape. Police are treating it as a tragic accident.
