HOT CARS-CHILDREN
Kentucky State Police officials warn of leaving children in hot cars

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, June 17, 2014 3:31 AM EDT
FRANKFORT, Ky.


With temperatures on the rise, Kentucky State Police officials are reminding parents not to leave children alone in hot cars.

It seems like common sense, but every year law enforcement agencies answer calls about unattended children in vehicles.

The National Safety Council says nine children have died in 2014 from being left in hot cars across the country.

KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb says a child's body heats up three to five times faster than that of an adult.

In 2000, Kentucky passed "Bryan's Law," which makes a person liable for second-degree manslaughter or first-degree wanton endangerment for leaving a child younger than 8 in a vehicle where circumstances pose a grave risk of death.

The law was named after an 11-month-old who died after being left in a hot car.
