10-Year-Old Invents Device To Prevent Hot Car Deaths

On average, 37 children die from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside vehicles. Even some of the best parents or caregivers can unknowingly leave a sleeping baby in a car; and the end result can be injury or even death. During the summer, the temperature in a car can rise by 20 degrees in less than 10 minutes even with the windows slightly cracked.

So one young man in Texas invented a device to put a stop to all heat-related car deaths and injury.

Ten-year-old Bishop Curry V says he was inspired to create a device he calls “Oasis” after a baby died in a hot minivan last summer outside a home in Melissa.
