  1. This applies to any weather, but PLEASE – DO NOT — DO NOT —- DO NOT leave your child in a car for any reason for any length of time!!

    As an EMT, I have seen horrible, horrible cases of children dying after being left in a car or in a pool “for just a minute”

    Stop for a minute and imagine life with your child gone. Imagine waking up every day and seeing their bed empty. Imaging living with the guilt of knowing you could have prevented his death by not “leaving him in car for just a minute” while you ran into the bank to cash a check.

    To all those who think it cannot happen… it can, and it does. Every year, infants and toddlers die after being left in hot cars, or unsupervised near pools.

    **warning – graphic description ahead**

    On a hot day, the inside of a car can rise to 140 degrees in minutes. At that temperature, the skin of a child or infant will turn red and start to bubble. The air in the car is so hot, it will burn the lungs with each breath. Due to the swelling of the skin, it will be very difficult for the child to sweat, so the body temperature will continue to rise. After just a few minutes, the temperature of the brain will get hot enough where brain cells will start to die off. Cells in other organs like kidney and liver will also start to die. The child will experience excruciating pain and it will probably be the most miserable experience he has ever gone through. He will be too weak to cry and will start losing his vision. The poor child will experience fear like never before and cry out for his mommy or daddy, but no one can hear him in a car with the windows closed. Death can follow very quickly.


    The above description is not a scare tactic. It is real and happens every time a child is left in a hot car for more than a few minutes. Print this out and keep it with you. The next time you think its okay to leave him in the car for a just a few minutes, read it and ask yourself “do I want to put my precious baby through this?”

  2. Please if u see children in a car alone even for just a minute, SMASHED THE WINDOW AND CALL HATZOLAH, remember every second counts and u could save a life!

  3. Please do not overdress ur baby even if they are newborn! Babies have the same temperature as you , so if u are boiling they are too!! No need for any blanket or even socks…
