A very important reminder! Don’t leave kids or pets in cars, please!
Today is Heat Stroke Prevention Day. It’s designed to remind people of the danger of leaving children in cars.
I know, we talk this subject to death. And yet death is the result for 19 kids so far this year. The adults responsible include a hospital CEO and a foster father. And who knows HOW many animals have died?
So why DO people leave kids in cars?
A study of the phenomenon found that:
51% – child “forgotten” by caregiver
29% – child playing in unattended vehicle
18% – child intentionally left in vehicle by adult (yes, they knew what they were doing, but didn’t think anything would happen)
1% – circumstances unknown
With animals, it’s almost always an intentional choice.
