In a hot car in Chesterfield, Virginia, a child was left alone in a few hours and died later. That is the story that happened in May last year.

The siblings, a boy, and a girl were found unresponsive in the SUV after police officers believed their father accidentally left them inside.

According to the New York Times:

“Dozens of children die of heat stroke each year in cars whose temperatures, even on relatively mild days, can quickly soar past 100 degrees. Many of those children were left behind by a distracted caregiver. …

“Safety advocates have tried to educate caregivers through appearances on television shows, advertising campaigns, literature, and more. Some efforts have included tips, such as putting one’s briefcase or purse next to the child, in hopes of helping caregivers remember the child in the back.”
