Spartanburg, South Carolina (WSPA) – As summer is approaching and temperatures are already rising, local police are calling on people to look at the back seats before locking the car.

On average, 38 children under the age of 15 die from heat stroke each year after being left in the car, according to the Spartanburg Police Department.

Those numbers were higher at 53 in 2018 and 2019. Police said the victims were left behind or trapped in a hot car.

Police have provided the following tips to prevent the death of such children.

  • Do not leave your child in the car, even if the windows are open, the motor is running and A / C is on.
  • Make it a habit to check the entire vehicle (front and back) before locking the door and leaving.
  • If your child does not appear for care on time, ask your child care provider to call you.
  • Place the necessary items such as a wallet or laptop in the backseat to make sure before locking.
  • Keep the keys out of the reach of children and tell them that the vehicle is not a playground.

Police said children were more vulnerable to heat stroke than the average adult.
