Police Investigating Children Abandoned In Cold Daycare Vans

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Jan. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  ATWEC Technologies, Inc. (OTCPINK: ATWT), a leader in the child safety industry, today announced recent instances of children being abandoned in daycare vans throughout the US.

On January 11, a Milwaukee man was accused of leaving a 7-year-old child on a daycare van for several hours on a cold Friday evening.  He was charged with one count of "child left unattended in child care vehicle."

Also on January 11, a Lawrence, Mass bus company admitted an employee made a mistake when a 2-year-old boy wasn't dropped off at home after daycare.  The boy was reportedly "in very bad condition after vomiting and urinating on himself" after falling asleep on the bus for several hours.  He was taken to the ER and is now in good health.

ATWEC, "Around the World Educating Children", has stepped up efforts to increase awareness for the need for legislation that will promote safety for children being transported to and from schools.  The Company's Kiddie Voice™ system is unique and patented, and provides a total child safety solution for delivery vehicles, and safeguards against this type of driver negligence.

The Milwaukee daycare center faces 11 violations for the incident.  Although the driver was supposed to have dropped the boy off at a child development center, the child fell asleep in the back of the van and the driver "did not check his bus ... as he should have" that evening, and then just drove home.

"Whether in the summer or in the winter, small children continue to be left in vehicles, and it could result in disaster," said ATWEC President and CEO Alex Wiley.  "The ATWEC Kiddie Voice™ system is designed to prevent these accidents, and we will keep working to make sure no child is ever left behind."

Shareholders and other investors can find information on these incidents posted on the Company's website home page, www.atwec.com.
