The National Weather Service is reminding people not to leave their children in a hot car, no matter the case.

"21 children have already died of pediatric vehicular heatstroke so far this year. Forgetting a child in a hot vehicle can happen to anyone, but doesn't have to." The National Weather Service tweeted.

A child's body temperature rises three to five times faster than an adult's, according to the NWS.

Experts say that heatstroke begins when the core body temperature reaches about 104 degrees. A core body temperature of about 107 degrees is lethal.

Last year, 52 children died of vehicular heatstroke, the NWS reports.

That's what happened in the book too. I haven't seen the movie so I don't know how true to the book it is.
