Kids in Hot Cars Are a Deadly Combination
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 11, 2016) -- With the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicting that most of the U.S. will face well above average temperatures this summer, Kentucky State Police is warning parents and caregivers about the fatal dangers posed by leaving children in hot cars.
"Heat stroke is the leading cause of non-crash related deaths for children ages 14 and younger," says Sgt. Michael Webb, a spokesman for the agency. "Your car can become an oven very quickly, reaching temperatures of 125 degrees in minutes even with the windows cracked."
"A child's body heats up three to five times faster than that of an adult," adds Webb, "and heat stroke can occur in temperatures as low as 57 degrees. On an 80-degree day, a car can reach deadly levels in just 10 minutes."
