Four Children Died in Israel This Year - Forgotten in the Car - Get This Gadgtet
Yet another baby died yesterday in an oven-hot car.
This time it was the baby's grandmother; a social worker. Totally regular, level minded lady. No different from me and you. Simply forgot.
According to Israel's child safety organization (I heard the interview on the radio this morning), these incidents tend to happen when people break their routine. In the case of the grandmother, she wasn't used to routinely picking up and dropping off this baby. It is natural and powerful that our minds go into auto-pilot, which is usually fine. But not when there's an added non-routine factor - in this case a baby on your back seat.
There is potentially life-saving gadget is available in Beit Shemesh from Keren Yosef and also from Yad Sarah throughout Israel.
See the attached video.
There are also apps, tips (like leaving your cellphone on the baby's seat) and gadgets (pressure cushion activated etc).
The time to act is NOW, rather than simply returning to each of our routines.
