Heatstroke Leading Cause of Non-Crash Vehicle Deaths for Children

BabySeatImagesHopkins, Franklin, Delta Child Fatality Review Team (CFRT) reminds area residents that summer is here and temperatures continue to rise.  So far this year, 11 children have died from heatstroke.  Texas has been known to lead the states in high number of heatstroke fatalities.  In just 10 minutes, your car temp can increase by 19 degrees and continue to rise.  A child’s body heats up 3-5 times faster than an adult.  It only takes a few minutes before a child becomes dangerously overheated.

Heatstroke is the leading cause of non-crash vehicle related deaths for children.  On the average, every 8 days a child dies from heatstroke in vehicles.  Never leave a child alone in the car, not even for a minute.


A – Avoid leaving your child in the car for even a minute.

C – Create a reminder that your child is in the car with you by putting something in the back seat next to your child such as a purse or cell phone.

T – Take action, if your child is alone in the car – CALL 911.  One call can save a life.
