Heat Stroke: United States record shows 8 children died in 6 months after being left in hot cars

HEAT STROKE: The number of confirmed heat-related vehicle deaths of children this year has reached at least eight, according to officials, who stated that a one-year-old infant died Thursday after being left in a hot vehicle in Danielsville, Georgia.

According to Capt. Jimmy Patton of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), the most recent tragedy appeared to be as a result of “the high temperatures inside the vehicle.”

According to a CNN report, Capt. Patton said via email that all signs and information so far point to this being accidental.

The latest heat stroke tragedy is coming just days after a 3-year-old boy who was left in a hot car for nearly three hours in southern Georgia died last weekend, authorities said.

According to the National Safety Council and the NoHeatStroke.org data portal managed by San Jose University’s Department of Meteorology and Climate Science, the occurrence in Danielsville, which is located about 87 miles northeast of Atlanta, was at least the fifth hot-car death of a child in June.


The council revealed that an average of 38 children under the age of 15 pass away from heatstroke every year after being left in a car.

Reports in Danielsville revealed that the local police responded and rendered aid before the child was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

Sources also said the child’s mother was inside her place of business for an undisclosed amount of time before she found the child.

An awful milestone was reached in 2019 when eight hundred children were reported to have died in hot cars since records began in 1998, according to NoHeatStroke.org.

Reports shows that aside from crashes, heatstroke is the leading cause of death in vehicles for children 14 years old and younger.

Cars transform into ovens when direct sunlight heats objects inside. Temperatures can soar to 120 or 130 degrees even when the outdoor temperature is only in the 80s. The body’s natural cooling methods, such as sweating, begin to shut down once the core body temperature reaches 104 degrees. Death can occur at 107 degrees.
