About the Project

The statistics are scary. According to Department of Meteorology & Climate Science San Jose State University, the number of U.S. heatstroke deaths of children left in cars from 1998 to the present, JUST IN THE USA, is 702. Total number of U.S. heatstroke deaths of children left in cars, 2016 is 39 Average number of U.S. child heatstroke fatalities per year since 1998 is 37 An examination of media reports about the 700 child vehicular heatstroke deaths for a 19-year period (1998 through 2017) shows the following circumstances: 54% - child "forgotten" by caregiver (376 Children) 28% - child playing in unattended vehicle (198) 17% - child intentionally left in vehicle by adult (120) 1% - circumstances unknown (6) Demographics of Persons Responsible for Heatstroke Deaths of Children Forgotten in Vehicles AGES The children that have died from vehicular heatstroke in the United States (1998-2016) have ranged in age from 5 days to 14 years. More than half of the deaths are children under 2 years of age. These are avoidable deaths and activation of this simple reminder app will remind drivers when they exit the vehicle that there is a baby on board.
