A vehicle can heat up quickly, rising 20 degrees within 10 minutes even when it is not extremely hot outside. Kidsandcars.org says there are an average of 38 child hot car deaths per year in the United States.

Dr. Carlie Stein Somerville, assistant professor in the University of Alabama at Birmingham departments of General Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, shares advice and tips for parents and caregivers to prevent the accidental heatstroke deaths of children in hot vehicles.

“As a mother and a pediatrician, I understand that parents and caregivers have a lot on their minds, and distractions are always there,” Stein Somerville said. “Setting reminders and practicing car safety can prevent harm and even death to our children during the hot summer months.”
