ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains the temperature inside a car can increase 20 degrees in just 10 minutes and 40 degrees in just an hour. He also notes that young kids are at a greater risk of heatstroke as their bodies can heat up 3 to 5 times faster than an adult.
Neuroscientist and psychologist Dr. David Diamond, who has extensively studied these tragedies, says there is technology available to prevent these accidents. He says there is a bill with bipartisan Congressional support that would outfit all new cars with a child detection system.
In the meantime, Dr. Diamond recommends that parents take steps each time they place their child in the car to remember they are present. He suggests having something int the car seat that you remove and then place in the front of the car or on the steering wheel (like a small stuffed animal) to help you remember the child is also in the car.
Filmmaker Susan Morgan Cooper who made the documentary "Fatal Distraction," says she has contacted the auto industry numerous times about why a child detection system is not standard in new cars and she has been told it is being studied. Mom Tania, whose daughter died after being mistakenly left in the car, feels her daughter would be alive today if a child detection system had been available. While, Judge Mary Chrzanowski tells The Doctors she believes the auto industry has not made the technology standard yet because they fear litigation if it were to fail.
