10-Year-Old Invents Device To Stop Children Dying In Hot Cars

posted by BC -

A young Texas boy has invented something that every parent could use: a device to prevent infant hot car deaths. Bishop Curry V is a 10-year-old fifth-grader at Melissa Ridge Intermediate School. He's also the son of Bishop IV, an operational excellence manager and process engineer who works at Toyota Financial Services in Plano, Texas. Bishop's dad knows better than most how cars work when left in direct heat and understands how infants can unknowingly be left behind in their parents' vehicles. "Sometimes babies fall asleep and they're really quiet, so if you're rushing home from work or you're rushing to the grocery store, I could see how somebody could forget,"

According to statistics, since 1998 around 712 children are thought to have died from heatstroke in the US alone after being left in hot vehicles.
