Somewhere along the way, Robinson says he got distracted and, without thinking, parked at work and went into the office with his son still in the car. The temperature in the car rose to 118 degrees and the boy spent nearly 2 hours inside the sweltering car.  Thankfully, he is OK, but police say another half-hour in the car could have cost that boy his life.
