The Health Corner: Leaving kids in cars: dangerous, unnecessary--and against the law

E-mail Print PDF

April 21, 2011 - Did you know a child's body heats up three to five times faster than yours when exposed to the same temperature? It's a major reason why seven Texas kids died in five months in 2010 after being locked in overheated cars--almost a third of the 23 deaths nationwide.

Johnny Humphreys, manager of the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Safe Riders program, says our blazing summer heat should be a rock-solid argument against leaving children alone in a car. But there are plenty more.

"For one thing, it's against state law to leave a child unattended in a locked car for more than five minutes, even with a window partially open," Humphreys said. "Our position is, simply, don't do it under any circumstances. It's just too great a risk."
