Hot Outside, Even Hotter Inside
Dr. Steve Lyons, Meteorologist in Charge at the National Weather Service in San Angelo, and Mona Lisa Didelot, Traffic Safety Specialist for the San Angelo District of TxDOT, display a dual thermometer that displays the temperature on the outside and on the inside of a parked car during a demonstration at the TxDOT headquarters in San Angelo on Tuesday. While the external temperature was a sweltering 102 degrees, the temperature inside the car soared to a deadly 170 degrees, demonstrating hazard for children or animals left unattended inside a parked car. Vehicular heatstroke has caused the death of two children in Texas in 2018 and 18 children nationwide. When a child’s temperature reaches 107 degrees, they die. From 1998 to 2016, 700 children have died of heatstroke in a vehicle. Of those, 376 were “forgotten” by the caregiver. -- COURTESY PHOTO
