                  NEW ORLEANS — 15 children have already died this year from being left inside of hot cars. It's an alarming number that New Orleans Emergency Services says is a reminder to people to take extra steps to prevent a child's death.

                  Jonathan Fourcade, a public information officer for New Orleans EMS says it takes just 10 minutes for a child to pass out in a hot car.
                  ...
                  "If it's 90 degrees outside on a typical day in New Orleans, after just 20 minutes inside that car we're looking at almost 120 degrees," Fourcade said.
                  ...
                  Last year, there was a record 52 deaths since the Council began keeping a record in 1998. Fourcade said all the deaths were preventable.

                  Experts recommend that whenever you put your baby in the back seat, just take off one of your shoes, and leave it back there so you remember your child still needs to be taken out.

                      Correction: Denton police initially said the vehicle Sarbesh was found in belonged to a family member. They later sent a statement saying that information was incorrect and that the vehicle actually belonged to a neighbor.

                      DENTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Denton had been searching for a missing 2-year-old for more than 15 hours when a horrible discovery was made.

                      It was around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday when officers found little Sarbesh Gurung in the back of an SUV at the apartment complex where he lived with his family.

                      At a morning news conference Denton Police Department Chief Frank Dixon said, “We stand here this morning heartbroken and it is with my deepest sorrow that I let you all know that we did locate Sarbesh this morning, just shortly after six o’clock. He was found in a vehicle and he was found deceased.”
