Five-year-old Nicholas Wanes was playing at his Pompano Beach, Fl., home on March 2 when he vanished from sight. After screaming for help, the boy’s family rushed over and discovered Nicholas inside of a white Igloo cooler.

For the most part…a lot of coolers today have done away with the closing latch.
