Texas and South Carolina lay infamous claim to the most hot car deaths this year, with three such deaths, each. In a recent newsletter reporting on the latest hot car deaths, meteorologist Jan Null wrote, “. . .  the total number of Pediatric Vehicular Heatstroke (PVH) deaths for 2018 [is] a staggering 28, with a couple other pending cases and too much summer left! This is the highest number of deaths through July 22nd of any year, going back to 1998. By July 22 last year there were a total of 27 deaths and the year ended with 43.”

Null keeps track of hot car death statistics. When you go to his website, noheatstroke.org, you’re confronted with the number of children who have died from pediatric vehicular heatstroke since 1998, when records were first kept. Under that constantly growing number (it was 769 as of this writing), Null writes, “All of these deaths could have been prevented.”

If only parents would believe these tragedies happen to the best of parents, and take precautions.
