Bruce that letter about the xlr door opening from inside when the battery is dead, is the result of a man who died when he couldn't get out of his car in the summer.

PORT ARTHUR, Texas — A 72-year-old man and his dog died of heat exhaustion Monday after they were unable to get out of his locked Corvette, according to police.

Police believe that when James Rogers got into the vehicle, a cable became loose and cut off the power to the operate the horn and locks. Rogers did not know how to manually unlock the vehicle and became trapped inside, according to the Port Arthur Police Department.

Police believe heat exhaustion eventually killed the two, as they sat in the parking lot of a Waffle House in Port Arthur.

Mike Flash, the owner of Corvette Specialties, told 12News that the 2007 Corvette has a manual release located on the floorboard by the driver's seat. But Rogers did not know that.

First responders also struggled to find a way to get Rogers out of the car, said M.J. Ponsegrau, who was at the scene.

Ponsegrau said eventually firefighters had to break the window.

"There's is a way to get in, but it's not common knowledge," he said.
