A Simulation of Rapid and Extreme Car Heating from Direct Sunlight


This video shows how quickly temperatures inside of a car can increase, putting anyone inside of that car at risk of injuries or even death caused by hyperthermia. Did you know that a childs body heats up 3 to 5 times faster than an adults? It only takes a few short minutes before a kid can become dangerously overheated. Make it a point to never leave your child alone in a car, even for one minute.
