Car Seat’s New Technology Aims To Prevent Hot Car Deaths.

With summer temperatures on the rise, Walmart is hoping to help parents avoid the common mistake of forgetting babies in the back seat in the hopes that it will keep the number of children’s deaths due to heat stroke down.

The car seat will also send out noise if the seat belt comes unbuckled mid-transit. “This car seat will eliminate the chance of a baby being forgotten in a car,” Walmart director of corporate communications Sarah McKinney told Yahoo. “It’s a heartbreaking tragedy when children die of heat stroke from being left in a vehicle,” Christopher Vaccaro, a spokesperson for the National Weather Service told Mashable in an email. “It’s critical for parents and caretakers to never leave a child in a vehicle, which can quickly get dangerously hot — even on a cool, cloudy day, nor for any length of time.” Ten children have already died of heatstroke from being left in hot cars this year, according to advocacy group Kids and Cars.
