Attention Parents: 18 Kids Have Died This Summer After Being Left In Hot Cars


Nearly 20 children have died this year due to being left in hot cars, according to Safe Kids Worldwide policy director Tony Green.

An average of 37 children die as a result of being left in a hot car each year, according to safety organization Kids and Cars.

“A car can heat up 106 degrees in 10 minutes, even if it’s cool or moderate weather like 80 degrees. So it’s really important for parents to remember their kids, never leave them in the backseat of a car,” Green said.

“Don’t leave them in the backseat of the car for a couple of minutes to get the dry cleaning. It’s not a good idea,” he said.
