This Month's YOU SHOULD KNOW Newsletter- More Kids Left in Hot Cars

Children Left in Hot Cars

Car temperatures can rise 20 degrees in 10 minutes, rapidly overheating a small child. You might think it’s impossible to forget there is a child in the car. That only happens to irresponsible parents, you might say, shaking your head.

News flash: It can happen to anyone, regardless of education or social standing.

  • In 2013, 44 children died of heatstroke after being left in the car, one of the worst years on record. Another 13 fatalities have been reported this year.
  • A child’s body heat can rise up to five times faster than an adult’s. In just 10 minutes, a car can heat up 20 degrees, quickly pushing a child’s body temperature to lethal levels.
  • According to a national study, 11 percent of parents admit to forgetting their child in a car. For those with children three and under, it is nearly one in four parents.
