Where’s baby? – The American campaign to avoid children heatstroke

LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK – The motto of the American campaign launched by Safecar.gov in order to avoid forgotten children into cars which could risk heatstroke.

With this motto, Safecar.gov wants to remind a tragic reality which every year occurs. From 1998-2015, 661 children died due to heatstroke, locked up into the cars of their parents or relatives.
According to statistics, of the 661 deaths:

  • 54% child “forgotten” by caregiver (356 children)
  • 29% child playing in unattended vehicle (186 children)
  • 17% child intentionally left in vehicle by adult (111 children)
  • 1% were unknown cases (5 children)

Do you think your children are always safe? Think you will never let this happen? Good, but this is not enough.

  • 54% of cases the child was “forgotten” by the caregiver.
  • 29% percent of cases, children got into the vehicle on their own.
