No parent should leave their child in the car for even a minute, but in the summer, the consequences for negligence can, and sadly often does, result in death. 

In just minutes, a vehicle  in the summer can reach well over 110 degrees, even with the windows cracked and in the shade. A child can quickly suffer from heat stroke or even die from such extreme temperatures. 

After the video of a vet demonstrating how hot a car can get to persuade pet owner to not leave their pets in the car went viral, this PSA by Red Castle Productions offering a similar warning for parents is trending as well.

The re-enactment shows how even a caring mother can be held up in a store long enough for her child to suffer from heat exhaustion or worse.

Actors demonstrate the exact course of action to take when finding a child locked in car in the summer.

BREAK THE WINDOW and save the child. Worry about broken glass later.

    very powerful video and great advice to anyone with a child or for anyone who sees a child in the car alone.
