With so much talk about the heat, the dangers of leaving your child or pet in the car can't be stressed enough.
Now that danger is the focus of an emotional video designed to make you think.
It's called "One Decision" and it focuses on a mother leaving her young son in the car.
She's doing the things many of us do. She's distracted by her phone, focused on her grocery list, talking to people in the store -- all while her son is stuck in her blazing hot car.
The heart wrenching video was produced by a Utah production company called Red Castle Productions, and is being distributed on YouTube.
Everyone in it is an actor, and the child was not harmed while the film was being produced, according to the film's producers.
Reminder to Parents
If you live in the Cincinnati area, the video is painfully reminiscent of two cases in the past few years where a child died in a hot car.
Nationally, 20 or more children die this way every year, so the producers of the film hope it serves as a reminder to parents to check the back seat when they leave their car.
Better yet, always place your purse, laptop, or other bag in the back seat so you have to open the back door before you go into worth of the store.
