Would you leave your child Inside a Sauna?
No one would put a baby inside of a sauna, would they? Did you know that according to research done by General Motors, a car can heat up 50 degrees hotter than the outside temperature? If the outside temperature is 80 degrees, that means the "left behind child" is sitting in 130 degree temperatures- or worse. That is how children die. Experiment: I went inside a sauna to see how hot 150 degrees felt. After three minutes, I was exhausted and dizzy.
What should you know?
Understanding the facts is a big step. Hi, my name is Kelly Ann and I would like to share with you information that may save a childs' life.

Saunas can heat up to 160 degrees. And so can cars!

What happens if I see a baby alone in a car?
In the state of Florida, there is a "Good Samaratin Law" which means that if you act "reasonably" you may take action to save that baby. This is good news. But, you must first call the police. However, while the police are on the way, the baby may not have much time. Especially with the windows closed, and a hot day, You might have to break a window. Try to get help- call out. But, keep watch on the child. I asked a policeman how to break a window on a car. He said never try to do it with your hand, or your foot. You will get hurt. But, perhaps a rock, or something heavy. He also said not to break the window over the child's head, but away from the child. Maybe the front side windows. Let's keep a watch for children in cars.
On Tuesday, September 17, 2020, the outside air temperature was over 93 degrees in Miami. In a car, the temperatures could easily rise to greater than 130 degrees! A child will die from heat stroke when the child's body temperature reaches 107 degrees. The body temperature is not the same as the car temperature. Heat Stroke can occur even when the outside air temperature is in the 60's and 70's. Remember: Never leave kids in cars unattended No matter what the air temperature is!
Kelly Ann Sings "Safe and Sound" for the children that have died in the back of cars- forgotten.
Children have a right to feel "Safe and Sound" knowing they will be cared for and remembered.
