Parents are putting children in danger when they run inside the store or house and leave kids in a car with no air conditioning.

It takes only minutes before the heat inside the vehicle becomes unbearable, and then deadly.

Children are more likely to suffer from a heat stroke due to their bodies heating up three to five times faster than an adults body. So, remember to look before you lock, making sure a child doesn't get left behind.
