Man dies locked in car: Texas Corvette Locked, A 72-year-old Texas man and his dog died Monday after becoming trapped in a Chevrolet Corvette.
James Rogers and his dog, Leia, likely died of heat exhaustion, KHOU reports.
The two were trapped in the parking lot of a Port Arthur, Texas Waffle House Restaurant after Rogers’ 2007 Corvette’s electrical power failed. Without power, the only way out was to manually open the door lock — which was by the floorboard.
Rogers couldn’t find it. The loss of power also disabled the horn.
