About 40 children die of heat stroke in the United States each year after becoming trapped in a car, the US Department of Transportation said. More than 950 children have died in a hot car in the past 25 years, records show. Children are more vulnerable to extreme heat because their body temperatures rise three to five times faster than that of an adult. Heat stroke begins when the body’s core temperature reaches 104 degrees Fahrenheit, and death can occur in children above 107 degrees. Most of the cases happen when a parent or caregiver forgets that the child is in the car.
