TN, AR. and MS rank in top 15 states for hot car deaths

Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi all rank in the top 15 states for hot car deaths.

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.

Two hours later, their grandmother showed up.

She will appear in court Wednesday.
