Why injury? It's this simple: more children die from injuries every year than from the next three leading causes of death combined. Nobody knows this because no one is talking about it. In the U.S., one child dies every hour from an injury that could have been prevented. Around the world, a child dies every 30 seconds as the result of an injury. You don’t need to have a child to know that we can do better.

Cooking pizza? In a car?

That might seem silly at first glance, but this video shows us what happens to an uncooked pizza in a hot car.

The point here is that if the temperature inside your car can get hot enough to cook a pizza in such a short time, the heat can definitely hurt your kids. That's why Carrie Underwood didn't hesitate to break into her car when she discovered her dogs had locked her 4-month-old son inside. She knew that she need to act quickly to avoid harm to her son (or dogs).

Over the past few years, we've heard more and more about this issue, but it keeps happening. We wanted to share this video as a reminder that the inside of car can get really hot, so don't leave your kids in the car even for a short period of time, and always look before you lock.
