The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says around 38 heat stroke deaths happen each year in the U.S.
Half of those are after a guardian leaves a child in a car.
So how do we prevent it?
Dr. Purva Grover of the Cleveland Clinic says leaving a stuffed animal in the front seat of your car will help remind you your child is in the backseat.
Dr. Grover also suggests putting daily use items in the back seat so you remember to look behind you.
"Sometimes if you leave a key item of your being -- so cell phone, wallet, bag on the backseat or on the ground, then you are liable to open the door to look for it and then that's when you can see that your child is there," said Dr. Grover.
Dr. Grover says the main tip is to never leave your child alone in a car for any period of time.
