Shoe trick will prevent child deaths in hot cars Published: July 3, 2014

USA Today says a 22-month-old boy in Georgia died June 18 after his dad left him in the back seat of his SUV.

A 9-month-old girl in Florida died two days earlier after being forgotten in the back of a pickup.

These tragedies could have been prevented. One simple way to make that happen: leave something you need in the back seat.

If you are driving a child, after you put them in a back seat — in a car seat, booster or buckled in with a seat belt — put your left shoe back there, too.
