    A 97-year-old woman is recovering in a Burlington hospital after she was left alone in a sweltering vehicle for almost an hour during the worst heat wave of summer while her family went shopping.

    Temperature has been hovering around 36C (97F) for the past few days. It was estimated that the temperature in the car was 50 (122).

    And the quote of the day:

    Her daughter, Bonnie Bouclair, 60, and Kimberly Bouclair have been charged with failing to provide the necessities of life.

    They aren't allowed to contact Arnott, who they've taken care of for 16 years.

    At their Acton home yesterday, both were apologetic and eager to be reunited with Arnott, who is less than 5 feet tall and 100 pounds.

    "She'll die if we can't bring her home," Bonnie Bouclair said, angered that other shoppers "didn't mind their business."

    "It's not like we left her in the car to die."
