Following the recent deaths of several children from being left in hot cars, a man in Raleigh, North Carolina has posted a video to YouTube to show people exactly how bad the experience is and raise awareness.

Terry Williams wanted to know how it felt to be left in an exceptionally hot vehicle with
the windows rolled up. While in the car, Williams said “I'm sweating, like I can barely breathe out here, but my system is stronger than these little kids systems."

Within ten minutes the temperature inside a vehicle can get 20 degrees higher, so Williams was likely sitting in 110 degree heat.

Earlier this year, a police officer in North Texas did something similar.

There have already been 16 heatstroke death of children in 2014 so far. 2013 saw a total of 44 children's deaths.
