The National Safety Council stated that in 2018, from January to September alone, almost 50 children throughout the United States lost their lives from being left in hot cars. You see the heartbreaking stories on the news all the time about how a child has suffered from pediatric vehicular heatstroke. In 52% of cases, the child was “forgotten” by the caregiver. In nearly 30% of cases, a child got into the vehicle on their own, according to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. Something important to remember when thinking about this serious topic is that these deaths are completely preventable.
