    I just found this over at TTAC and found it to be both interesting and sad. Sad because of the details and the fact that we are approaching the holiday season too. At least it was solved.

    True story...
    My father in law croaked while he was sitting in a KIA Forte outside his doctor's office.
    Someone noticed that it was running but hadn't moved for a few hours.

    So, KIA sometimes really does live up to its acronym.

    Pretty negligent of the hospital and all the people who patrolled the lot. Let's see...hospital...car there for weeks, months, years...hospital...someone get sick, die?...hospital...maybe duh we should check?

    At least there's closure here. Now who gets the car?

    Man,I thought he was found dead in the car. Now if was still in the car after all these years I would be kinda of shocked,but since he died in the hospital and his car just left there after all these years.....No big deal..Surprised the Police weren't summoned to check this out by the silly security guard posing next to the car.

    Re: Long lost Kia owner discovered.

    I work for a trucking company and it is quite "normal"
    for "borrowed" cars to get parked in our rear lots / truck driver lots due to how LONG they are on the road / time till discovery
    I would assume the hospital security would investigate a car IDLING for DAYS
    or some one would have looked into the deceased person to find his/her car
    as I could see this being a common occurrence as the next of kin might ASSUME the car is in the shop/at work/friends place ETC and NOT at a Hospital
    furthermore sure the Hospital was being "nice" BUT they SHOULD have tried to FIND the owner/next of kin to some level

    That was one of my thoughts too that there was at least some negligence on the part of the hospital in this ordeal.
