It’s summer again, and the tragedies have already begun.
Children are dying in hot cars.
This North Carolina resident put himself through a lot of discomfort to show you just how bad it can get. Remember, an enclosed vehicle can reach oven-like temperatures in just 10 minutes.
“Every 10 days in the United States, a child dies when left alone in a car. … it’s not just a summer thing,” says Jann Fawcett, coordinator for the Safe Kids Weber-Morgan Coalition and injury prevention specialist for the Weber-Morgan Health Department in Utah.
“A child’s body heats up three to five times faster than an adult’s body, so they’re much more susceptible to heatstroke.”
