Another child has died in a hot car, but this time the parents didn't forget the kid instead it got into the car on its own. On Thursday, CNN shared the news about the three-year-old who climbed into a car and died inside. This child was just three-years-old and was playing outside when it climbed inside the car. The big question is why the kid was alone outside.

This child was alone in their front yard and the car was unlocked. It climbed inside of the car and ended up getting stuck inside. The young boy could not get out of the car no matter what he did and ended up dying inside of it. The father woke up from a nap and then the child was in the car unresponsive when he found him. At this time, they do not know how long he was in the car.

The police do not suspect foul play, but the parents could end up being in trouble still. This child was only three-years-old. Instead of watching him the father was napping and didn't even know where his child was at when he ended up in the car. One way to prevent this from happening would have also been to lock the car.

As parents, you should be aware of where your children are at no matter what is going on. Locking your car can prevent your child from getting hurt or another child in the neighborhood. Things like this can be prevented and you should take all precautions to make sure that your child never ends up locked inside a hot car.

GG Weather shared that nineteen children have died this year from heat related accidents. In 2013, there were 44 deaths of children because of heat. There are also a lot of close calls that children actually survive, but barely. Hopefully everyone will start to be more careful about this and the number can decrease over the next few years.
