KSP Reminding Parents to Not Leave Children Alone in Vehicles

Kentucky State Police is reminding parents not to leave children alone in hot cars as temperatures rise this week. KSP spokesman Lt. Michael Webb advised that the interior of a car heats up very quickly and temperatures inside can reach 125 degrees in minutes, with a child’s body temperature rising three to five times faster than an adult’s. Safety tips for parents include never leaving a child unattended in a car, even with the windows down, and place purses or briefcases in the backseat as a reminded that you have a child in the car. Citizens are asked to keep an eye on children left in vehicles on hot days and to call 911 if the occupant is in danger.
