A mum is warning other parents of the dangers of heatstroke – even if their kids haven’t been outside in the sun.
Jessica Abma posted a photograph of her young daughter, Anastasia, on Facebook with a crucial message for other parents.
In the image, her daughter looks to be sleeping soundly under light bedding with reddened, damp skin.
The mum admits she had just experienced “the scariest moment I’ve had to imagine” when she took the picture, and explained that her little girl was suffering symptoms of severe heatstroke.
