It’s not even summer yet, and already two children have died this year from heatstroke in vehicles. To promote National Heat Awareness Day, the Kids and Cars group is launching a Facebook campaign offering safety tips for protecting children from heat-related injuries. 37 children die of heatstroke in vehicles every year. In just a matter of minutes, cars reach deadly temperatures. Even the most responsible parents can unknowingly leave their child in a vehicle. Experts say check your backseat and look before you lock.
