"Always look at the backseat of the car, and if there is a child in there or you hear a child screaming, please just you know, help," the heartbroken mother said.
A couple who had to endure the loss of their pregnancy six times is now going through the worst pain imaginable as they have now lost their miracle baby after she died from being left in a hot car by her babysitter. Two-year-old Zariah Hasheme died on September 17, in New Mexico, after her baby sitter, Tammie Brooks, 40, left her in the car, according to a report by Daily Mail. Brooks allegedly drove straight to work and left the two-year-old in the car, after forgetting she had to drop Zariah Hasheme at daycare. The babysitter realized the baby was still in the car when she was decided to go to the bank.

The temperature in the car was recorded at 91°F heat. The police were alerted about the situation at 1.30 pm, and they were informed that a woman accidentally left a child in a car. The two-year-old baby was declared dead by the Hobbs Fire and Rescue team that arrived at the scene in response to the 911 call. As expected, Zariah's parents Demi Petrowski and Zachary Hasheme are heartbroken.
Zachary found out about his daughter's death over the phone when his wife frantically called him. "I hear Demi screaming on the other line saying that Zariah's dead and I didn't know what to do. I slammed on my brakes and pulled over,' said Zachary Hasheme. The devastated dad still can't come to terms with the fact that his daughter died as a result of their babysitter's negligence.

"I mean, you can forget to bring a pen with you, but it's kind of hard to forget about a kid in the car," said Zachary Hasheme. The babysitter, Brooks, has since been charged with abandonment or abuse of a child resulting in death. The baby's mother, Demi Petrowski, who had to endure six miscarriages, said the pain of losing her daughter is unbearable. "I would not wish this pain and this hurt upon my worst enemy," said Demi, according to KOB4.
"I had six miscarriages previously to having my daughter. I remember praying every single day, nonstop," said Demi. Tammie Brooks is currently held at Hobbs County Detention Center and will be presented in court this week. Shockingly, America has already seen 43 hot car deaths this year. Demi Petrowski and Zachary Hasheme are now urging people to check the backseats of cars parked outside as a safety precaution.

"Always look at the backseat of the car, and if there is a child in there or you hear a child screaming, please just you know, help,' Demi said. She also wants daycare centers to keep track of children scheduled to turn up at their facilities. "As for daycare centers, if you know a child is not there at their appointed time, please contact the parents or someone on the emergency list right away,' said Demi Petrowski.
