Look Before You Lock: Leaving Kids in Hot Cars

It’s August. It’s hot!

You just need to run into the store for a few minutes to grab a few groceries. Your six-month-old is sleeping soundly and he really needs a nap. Should you leave him be and run in to the store?

With all the news about children dying in hot cars, the Dr. Linda Mintle radio show decided to talk more about why cars are so dangerous and what happens to children, the elderly and even pets when left in a hot car.

To do so, I brought in special guest Dr. Chris Thomson, a physician in the emergency room at Lynchburg General Hospital in Lynchburg VA and also Chair of Emergency Medicine at Liberty University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. This is a 27-minute interview packed with information and suggestions regarding  ways to remind yourself that your kids are in your car! Take a listen.
