So far in 2014
there have been at least thirteen heatstroke deaths of children in vehicles; eleven confirmed as heatstroke and two are still pending official findings by the medical examiner. In 2013, there were at least forty-four deaths of children in vehicles; thirty-nine which have been confirmed as heatstroke and five which, based upon the known circumstances, are most likely heatstroke (2013 list
All of these deaths are preventable! To help bring awareness to this issue, the National Weather Service is using the slogan "Beat the Heat, Check the Backseat" to remind people to remember to check for small children in a car seat and to never leave children unattended in a vehicle- even for a few moments. Remember that pets should also never be left in a vehicle during the summer months.
