How Would You Feel Left Alone In a Hot Car?
A non-for-profit called ‘Kars 4 Kids’ took a new approach to reminding us about how dangerous it is to leave children unattended in a car on a hot summer day. The experiment turned the tables on 6 adults who were challenged to sit in the backseat of a hot car on a summer day when temperatures rocketed up into the 90s in the town of Lakewood, New Jersey.
At first the adults tried to busy themselves, humming or thinking of cooler climates, but one by one each of them began to panic as time wore on. The challengers were given an emergency eject button if they couldn’t last in the car the full ten minutes – which all of them opted to use.
“I felt claustrophobic. I felt like I couldn’t breath,” mentions one of the adults. “I couldn’t take it.”
The video also reminds us of the staggering statistic that each week one child dies from heatstroke as a result of being left unattended in a car.
