Last year, 43 children in the United States according to kidsandcars.org. and so far this year 18 children have died from being left in a hot car. That's why Saint Luke's expert want to remind parents to look before they lock.
"There are many reasons why a parent might leave their children in a back seat," Terry Dickinson, a registered nurse and child passenger safety technician at Saint Luke's North Hospital said. "It's not intentional, it's an accident. But it's a preventable accident."
Terry explains how hot it can get inside a vehicle, even with the windows down, how preventable these child deaths are, and what you can do as a parent to prevent it happening to you and your family.
