Many parents out there have likely left their child in the car for a moment or two on a hot summer day. Sometimes, it may be easier to go to the store or stop for fuel without having to attend to a bored, curious or unruly child. There are a number of reasons why mothers opt for this approach, but it can be more dangerous than originally thought. Perhaps a parent runs into an old friend while they are inside of the business establishment, or the line is longer than originally expected. No parent purposely forgets their child or leaves them inside of a vehicle on a hot day without considered the consequences. Sometimes, life simply gets in the way.
Did you know that a child dies due to vehicular related heatstroke every ten days? This is an alarmingly high number, one that needs to be addressed immediately. Not only should this statistic to the reader, but it is even more tragic when you stop to consider the fact that these incidents are entirely avoidable.
No child should ever die in this manner and as with any other societal ill, increased awareness is the key. The word needs to be spread as far and wide as possible, so that more children do not suffer from the same fate. A parent should never have to bury their child, especially for reasons such as these.
