free templatePerhaps the haste, perhaps the thoughts that afflict every adult, have distracted thousands of parents around the world causing terrible tragedies and the dripping of the children forgotten in vehicles. In the U.S. this type of accident causes an average of 38 deaths per year, nearly all of the spring, summer and early autumn, and in most cases they are children less than two years, forgotten in vehicles by healthy and "normal" parents usually careful and considerate, victims of an occasional distraction. The Washington Post reported a few stories and then some conversations with parents of children who have died in recent years, and neurophysiologists and experts of memory, from which it emerged that the fatal distraction is often linked to a series of coincidences and factors very similar in all cases (fatigue, lack of sleep, small changes in daily routine). There is not a profile-type of the parent who forgets his son in the car: it happens to people usually distracted maniacs as well as to the organization and "everything under control", a highly educated people and people with low levels of education.

How does it usually happen?

 

Every time the incident is repeated in a series of events very similar: a parent particularly tired, stressed or agitated for some unexpected change in daily routine, forget to leave the child somewhere (usually nursery) and continues day as if he had. Then, after a few or many hours, but always too late, there comes a time when some signal to the parent remembers the irreparable carelessness, usually a phone of your spouse or anything that evoke the thought of his son.
Follows a desperate race to the car parked in the sun, and the tragic discovery.
But there are also cases of parents who come back in the car and, without noticing the body on the rear seat, he does not realize what happened until they return at the kindergarten to take child who never left there.
The temperature inside a car in the sun, due to the transparent glass and the internal parts subject to rapid overheating (dashboard, seats, steering wheel), can go up to 10 or 15 ° C every quarter hour, until reaching the 50 ° C with an outside temperature of only 25 ° C.
Moreover, the body temperature of a baby increase faster than that of an adult, due to the lower surface of the body and the smaller amount of water reserves: given these conditions, the hyperthermia in a forgotten child in the car may occur also in 20 minutes and death within 2 hours.
