Temperatures outside are still mild but summer is only a few short months away. Sadly, we report on small children or animals dying in hot cars every season.
Now, a new device is emerging that could help prevent that.
The device is called Sense A Life, it has a weighted sensor on the seats and gives you a voice alert if your child is in the car when you turn it off.
As a backup, there is a message sent straight to your phone.
The inventors say it is a simple solution to a really big problem. They have applied for a patent and you could see the device on the market later this year.
