8th Heatstroke death in 2014

A 15-month old girl died Wednesday afternoon, bringing the total deaths of 2014 to 8. The child was left inside a car for nearly 7 hours before being found in Dolgeville, NY.

Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash, vehicle-related deaths for children. On average, every 10 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle.

Babies and young kids can sometimes sleep so peacefully that we forget they are even there. It can also be tempting to leave a baby alone in a car while we quickly run into the store. The problem is that leaving a child alone in a car can lead to serious injury or death from heatstroke. Young children are particularly at risk, as their bodies heat up three to five times faster than an adults. These tragedies are completely preventable. Heres how we can all work together to keep kids safe from heatstroke.

Reduce the number of deaths from heatstroke by remembering to ACT.
