    A 72-year-old Texas man died alongside his dog on Monday after he reportedly became trapped in his car.
    James Rogers of Port Arthur was having a morning coffee at a local Waffle House he regularly frequented when he stepped outside to check on his Shih Tzu inside his 2007 Chevrolet Corvette. The Port Arthur Police Department told the Beaumont Enterprise that Rogers arrived at the Waffle House around 8 a.m. and checked on the dog around 11:55 a.m. He left his phone to charge inside the restaurant, the paper reported.
    Police believe a battery cable came loose, disabling the car's electric locks and other systems and leaving Rogers unable to exit the vehicle, according to KBMT. Authorities believe Rogers struggled to escape and he and the dog eventually succumbed to heat exhaustion.
    Waffle House employees reportedly called in another regular patron, who owns a local roadside assistance company, to try to free Rogers, but Rogers was already dead. Firefighters eventually broke a window to access the vehicle.
    The owner of a used Corvette dealership in nearby Beaumont told the news station that the 2007 model does have a manual door release on the floorboard but not all owners are aware of it.

    I heard about a Polish guy that locked his keys in car.
    Took him a week to get his wife and kids out.

    One would assume if he was able to do that he could have also exited the vehicle.

    So this old coot arrives at the Waffle House at 8:00am. He decides to check on the dog he left in the car at 11:55! He left that poor animal in there all that time? Now I'm glad he's dead. Then he somehow gets locked in the car because the battery cable gets disconnected. Okay, that explains why he couldn't drive away, but he was in a Waffle House parking lot. You telling me he couldn't get the attention of anybody walking nearby by tapping on the windows and yelling for help? I mean it had to take a couple of hours to die in there.

    Police believe a battery cable came loose, disabling the car's electric locks and other systems

    Even that wouldn't have helped. But, what the hell, wasn't there ANYONE else outside that would have seen him?

    *Warning - Girl Question coming* Does the horn work off the battery? Couldn't he have just laid on the horn until someone helped him? :dontknow:
