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.
