"Why'd you leave the kids in the car?," a police officer can be heard asking the woman with a shopping trolley, in a video from 7 News.

"You locked three kids in the car on a 30C day. It's ridiculous. You say, 'yeah, yeah sure', but I don't think you understand."

Temperatures in Riverwood reached 29C yesterday.

Paramedics attended but the children didn't need treatment.

They were taken to Hurstville Police Station where Family and Community Services were notified.

No charges were laid.

It comes after a three-year-old boy died after being left in a minibus in Cairns.

The boy's body was found on the bus parked outside the Goodstart Early Learning Centre in Edmonton, more than six hours after he was picked up from his home.

In December five-year-old Natasha Gorjup - who was pulled from a hot car in Port Stephens - tragically died in hospital.

A week earlier two sisters - aged one and two - died inside a station wagon parked across the front yard of a family home.

The lifeless bodies of Darcey-Helen, 2, and Chloe-Ann, 1, were found inside a hot car in Logan, south of Brisbane.

The temperature in the area was 31C at the time and there are reports their mother, 27-year-old Kerri-Ann Conley, had fallen asleep inside.

Ms Conley was later charged with two counts of murder.
