The weather is warming up, time to start looking in parking lots for children left in cars to die.  Every year children are left in cars and they die.  Drive through parking lots in the morning when people first get to work, they forget to leave the kid at day care.  Drive through shopping center parking lots after 3:00 p.m. when the kids are out of school and mothers go shopping.

About 40 kids per year die after being left alone in cars.  If you suspect heat stroke, call the paramedics, remove the child from the car and into a shady space or air conditioned room, put cool water on them, and have them drink water if they can.  Fan them with paper

In California it is illegal to leave a child six years old or younger alone in a car on a hot day, or if the motor is running or keys are in the car.  Even older children and adults can suffer from heat related illnesses in a hot car.  Don't let any more kids die in cars; that's what the SGT Says.
