It was a dramatic scene: strangers smashing the windows of a hot car to free the children crying inside. Their mother reportedly left them alone while she was getting her hair cut.

Harris' husband is charged with murder in the death of their 22-month-old son, who was left in a hot SUV for seven hours. Martin Savidge has the latest on that case.
