Although it was only around 90° outside, it's estimated that the interior temperature could have easily been upwards of 130°.

After the outrage over the Justin Ross Harris case, parents are now more than ever advocating the safety of children.

On average, 38 kids die from heatstroke in a car per year. 51% of those deaths are caused by them being "forgotten." Twelve children have already died in 2014.
