According to research, thirty-nine children died of a heat stroke in hot car incidents last year.
Bishop Curry IV, the 10 year old boy’s father shares that one death that hit close to home. “I knew exactly where the house was,” said Bishop Curry IV, the 10-year-old’s father.
“Sometimes babies fall asleep and they’re really quiet, so if you’re rushing home from work or you’re rushing to the grocery store, I could see how somebody could forget,” said Curry IV, who is an engineer for Toyota in Plano. His son’s, Curry V, device is still in the design phase and would be attached to a car seat and would be able to detect if a child is left inside of the vehicle and blow cool air until the parents and authorities are notified.
“It would be a dream to have lots of inventions that would save many lives,” Curry V said.
