You wouldn't think any parent would leave a child in a car on a hot day but it does happen. That is why the Department of Family Services held a demonstration Tuesday. It's part of a campaign called "Look Before You Leave."
Organizers put a doll and a thermometer in the backseat of a car. With the windows up, it took twelve minutes to heat up to 130-degrees.
"If you are going into a store and see a child left in a hot car we want you to call 9-1-1," said Greg Cunningham with Department of Family Services.
Last August, a one year old Lubbock boy died after he was left inside a hot car. His mother thought she dropped him off at daycare and didn't realize he was in the back seat until it was too late.
