FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials will launch a campaign
Monday to help keep children from being killed or injured from
being left in a hot vehicle.
Safe Kids USA says last year was the worst on record in terms of
children dying in the U.S. after being left unattended in vehicles.
A total of 49 children between the ages of 2 months and 6 years
died from vehicular hyperthermia in 2010.
The organization recommends leaving a purse or briefcase in the
back seat of the vehicle or setting a cell phone alarm as a
reminder when a child is in the car and says to leave car doors
locked when you're not around so kids won't climb inside to play.
