UPDATE: 34 Children Have Died in Hot Cars in 2019

In 2018, at least 52 children were killed in hot cars, the highest number on record.  On average, 38 children die each year from heat-related deaths after being left or becoming trapped in a vehicle.  The temperature inside a car can reach 125 degrees in
