"Where’s baby? Look before you lock." Prevent heatstroke deaths this summer!

Where’s baby? Look before you lock."The summer is heating up and NHTSA’s heatstroke prevention and awareness efforts are in full swing. This marks the fourth summer that NHTSA has spread awareness about the dangers of child heatstroke in hot cars, while urging parents and caregivers to think, “Where’s Baby? Look Before You Lock.” Since 1998, over 630 children in America have died from heatstroke. Over half, 53 percent to be exact, were forgotten in vehicles; 29 percent gained access by themselves and became trapped; and 17 percent were left intentionally by adults not fully aware of the dangers. Already, eight children this year and more than 30 children in 2014 lost their lives from heatstroke after adults left them in unattended vehicles."
