Nearly 40 children die of heatstroke every year due to being left in hot cars.

Even when the temperature outside is only 70 degrees, the temperature inside a car can quickly heat to over 120 degrees.

Since 2010, more than 220 children have died of heatstroke after being trapped inside vehicles, according to kidsandcars.org.

Now there is a new technology called ‘Sensorsafe’ created to chime as soon as the car is turned off if a child is still buckled in the seat.
