Heat In Parked Car Turns Deadly In 5-10 Minutes

From KETV.com:

"On an 80-degree day this month, a Children's Hospital and Medical Center expert placed a gauge inside a car to show how fast the environment becomes deadly.

The gauge read 91.4 degrees when first placed inside the parked car. With the windows up, the Greenhouse Effect kicked up the heat at a critical rate. Not even five minutes later, the temperature was climbing past 99 degrees.

At 10 minutes in the car, the temperature was up to 106.2 degrees -- hot enough to kill a person."
