We're sad to report another child has died while left in a hot car. 23 children have died in hot cars this year.
We've had many emails and tweets wondering how could this happen? Some stating I can't imagine forgetting my child in a car and I know people are busy and if there are several kids getting out of the car, the phone rings, I may get distracted and I did not get a head count.
With triple digit temperatures engulfing the country, this tragedy could happen again. We're here to make sure it doesn't.
We know how busy you are, so here are a few tips to insure your family's safety:
*Never leave children alone in or around cars, not even to run in the store for a minute.
*Place something you need like your cellphone, purse, or house keys on the floor in the back seat. It will force you to go to the back seat.
*Keep a stuffed animal in your child's car seat when your child is not in it. When you place your child in the seat, put the stuffed animal in the front seat to remind you your child is safely buckled up.
*If you see a child left alone in a car, get involved. Go in the store and ask did anyone leave a child alone in a car? if the child appears to be sick or in distress, call 911 and try to get them out as quickly as possible.
