NM Teen’s Invention Alerts Parents When Child Is Left in Hot Car
A New Mexico teen is trying to save young lives with her innovative invention.
Alissa Chavez, 17, was on “Fox and Friends” this morning to discuss Hot Seat, a safety device that can be placed in any infant, toddler or booster seat to sense when a child is left in a car alone.
Chavez demonstrated how an alarm sounds when the key fob is 40 feet away from a vehicle, and a child is still in the car.
So far this year, 18 kids who were left in cars have died.
Chavez is crowd funding to build a prototype for the Hot Seat so she can start manufacturing them.
