How many American children have died in cars this summer?


A 5-year-old boy left in a car outside the Texas school where his parent worked is the 18th child to have died in a hot car this year.

Officials held a news conference Friday about the boy’s death, which took place on Thursday, but released very few details, including whether his mother or father worked at the school or how they came to leave him in the car on a 99-degree day.
