-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
EVEN WHEN THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE IS ONLY 70 DEGREES, THE INSIDE OF A PARKED CAR CAN STILL HEAT UP TO 120 DEGREES--WITHIN JUST 15 MINUTES.  AND, THAT'S WITH THE WINDOWS OPEN.  THIS CAN BE LETHAL--ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN.  SADLY, AN AVERAGE OF 37 YOUNG LIVES ARE LOST, EACH YEAR, FROM BEING LEFT UNATTENDED IN AN AUTOMOBILE; MANY CASES INVOLVE KIDS BEING LEFT IN A CAR BY MISTAKE, AND MOST VICTIMS ARE UNDER TWO YEARS OLD.  FORMER "N-T-S-B"-CHAIR, MARK ROSENKER ["ROSEN-CURR"], SAYS THAT HEATSTROKE-DEATHS ARE AVOIDABLE--IF PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS ARE VIGILANT...

(ROSENKER):
"
EVERY YEAR, IN THE U-S, TOO MANY CHILDREN DIE ACCIDENTALLY--FROM HEATSTROKE--WHEN LEFT IN A HOT CAR ALONE.  REMEMBER, A CHILD'S BODY CAN HEAT UP THREE- TO FIVE-TIMES FASTER THAN THAT OF AN ADULT.  SO, DURING THIS HOT SUMMER-SEASON, PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS, NEVER, EVER LEAVE YOUR CHILD ALONE IN A CAR--EVEN FOR A MINUTE."
