Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi all rank in the top 15 states for hot car deaths.
With a heat index near the triple digits, parents and caretakers should remember to check their vehicle for their children before they walk away.
Experts say the average temperature inside a car can rise 19 degrees in 10 minutes and 29 degrees in 20 minutes.
As temperatures rise, children left in hot cars can become sick very quickly. Experts say people left in a hot car can suffer from heat stroke, which happens when the body’s core temperature reaches about 103 degrees Fahrenheit. There’s not really a way to recover from heat stroke on one’s own, so unless a person is found quickly, they’ll likely die.
Earlier this week, Real Value Inn employee Sharunda McDowell found several kids inside a truck, took them out and brought them inside. She says they were a mess, dehydrated, had all wet themselves, and were starving. They had been in the car for several hours when she found them.

(KTHV) — An arrest warrant has been issued for renown boxer and Arkansas native Jermain Taylor.
According to Capt. Carl Minden with the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, the warrant is for second degree battery after Taylor allegedly hit someone at the Oasis Renewal Center.
Authorities plan to arrest Taylor at 9 a.m. Friday when he appears in court.
THV11 reported in January that Taylor was arrested after a man said that the boxer shot at him and pointed a gun at his wife and children. He was charged with two counts of battery, three counts of aggravated assault, one count of possession of substance, and third-degree endangering a minor.
In early March, Taylor was released to a recovery center “with electronic monitor and reports of behavior.”

That’s one of the scariest things about synthetic marijuana, or K2, according to Wegner.
“You cannot reason with them. They act as if they can’t even understand the English language.”
Wegner says many users end up in the emergency room.
“These are chemicals that were put together that are not supposed to be put in your body and can have some very serious side effects.”
Often times it makes users become aggressive, violent and combative, according to Wegner.
“It’s hard to say how someone’s going to react. I’ve seen some just flat out pass out and sleep it off and then I’ve seen other become extremely violent.”
Arkansas banned synthetic marijuana in 2010, but Wegner said young people still seem to get their hands on it.
“Right now one of the biggest things we can do is especially educate parents because we’ve seen a lot of young kids come having being exposed to this stuff.”
According to Poison Control there are 47 different variations of K2 known in the state of Arkansas.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The four members of a family who died when their broken-down SUV was rear-ended on the Buckman Bridge on Monday afternoon had recently moved to Jacksonville. The victims’ husband and father, a corpsman at NAS Jacksonville, who had recently moved his family here from Arkansas, will return there with the burden of burying his wife and children in their home state.
The pastor of the family’s church — Trinity at Oakleaf — said the church is collecting online donations and gift cards to help the father, Dexter Culclager, pay for travel expenses. Gift cards can be dropped off at 800 Hammond Blvd. at the C Building front desk, and online donations can be made at http://www.gofundme.com/Culclager.
Dexter Culclager will be going home to Pine Bluff, Arkansas, for the funerals of his wife, 36-year-old Yakel Culclager, and their three children: 18-year-old Trequis Woods-Sims, 17-year-old Tradesia Woods-Sims and 6-year-old Trevieon Woods-Franklin.
All four were killed when the SUV they were in burst into flames after it was struck on the bridge, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The family had moved to Jacksonville’s Westside. A man who just heard the victims of the tragedy were his neighbors reacted with shock.
“The father had high hopes for his oldest son. He was going to make a decision whether he would join the military or not,” said Dean Buben. “His older daughter’s about to graduate high school and was talking about college. That’s what she was excited for. And the little kid was full of energy. He run around this neighborhood like a firecracker all of the time.”
