Not sure if I'm asking the right question in a forum like this but here's my story...
I placed my 5 month old daughter (she was in the car capsule) on the ground behind my car as it was in a hot sunny day and this was the only shade. I then started my car (don't worry, it's an automatic and was in "Park" so there was no running-over risk) to get the air conditioning going to cool the car before I put her into it.
I then opened all of the doors to let the hot air out and then went back to check on her and it was then that I realised how stupid I was as she was about 2 feet away from the exhaust outlet and would definitely have inhaled some of the fumes. She wasn't directly in line with it and facing it... but to the side of it and facing away from it.
I am guilt ridden. Could I have caused her any damage?
I have a relatively new car and so expect that emissions are of the highest (cleanest) available.
Does anyone have any advise or know where I can seek further information re any possible effects of a few seconds (10-20 max) exposure to these fumes?
