Louisiana police officer lockes himself in cruiser for hot car PSA

A Louisiana police officer locked himself inside a hot car to demonstrate how quickly the heat can turn deadly for children and pets.
   
Officer David Melancon stayed in the hot car for 10 minutes, and temperatures had already reached over 100 degrees.

"It's nine minutes in...I got sweat everywhere. It's hard to breathe. It is very hot", says Officer Melancon.

The whole experiment was supervised.
