Year’s First Death of Child Left in Hot Car Reported in Burleson

KWES NewsWest 9 / Midland, Odessa, Big Spring, TX: newswest9.com |

KWES in Odessa, Texas is reporting the sad news of the death of a toddler last Friday. The young boy died as a result of vehicular heat stroke in the state in 2017.

39 kids passed away in hot cars in 2016. Parents or guardians can be arrested in Texas for leaving a child alone inside a hot car according to newswest9.com. In the video above, you can see the NewsWest9 team conduct a field test to note just how fast the temperature can rise inside a parked vehicle in Texas. As the spring weather turns warmer this stands as an important reminder not to leave children or pets alone in locked vehicles.

Temperatures inside cars can climb 20 degrees higher than outside temperatures very quickly. On days with temperatures in the 70’s or 80’s, a car can quickly become overheated inside and cause vehicular heat stroke. Police urge parents to take children inside with them regardless of the situation, and never to leave them alone inside a vehicle on a warm day.
