Check backseat twice for child safety

Updated: Tuesday, July 15 2014, 11:48 AM CDT
The Florida Department of Highways Safety is reminding everyone to take additional steps to prevent children from being left by themselves in a car this summer.

 This year, there have been two reported cases in Florida children dying of heatstroke after being left in cars.
   
The Department of Highway Safety says to take a second look in the back seats of cars to make sure that a child is not left behind.
   
The inside of a vehicle can heat up by 20 degrees in just 10 minutes and cracking a window open does little to keep the vehicle cool.
   
Florida law makes it a criminal offense to leave a child under the age of 6 unattended in a vehicle even for a short period of time.
