A 3-year-old boy died Tuesday in a parking lot at the University of Southern Indiana after being left strapped in a carseat all day, according to the Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office.
Vanderburgh County Coroner Steve Lockyear identified the child as Oliver Dill. Oliver's father discovered him and sought help from the University of Southern Indiana Children's Center around 1:45 p.m., according to the Evansville Courier & Press. The boy later died.
Oliver is the 19th child to die in a hot car in the United States this year, according to NoHeatStroke.Org, an effort to track vehicular heat stroke deaths backed by the National Safety Council.
A car can heat up 20 degrees in just 10 minutes and become deadly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the body temperature of a child rises at three to five times the body of an adult.
The child was found in early-afternoon and had been in the car since early morning, according to the Evansville Courier & Press. The weather in Evansville on Tuesday was 92 degrees, according to weather.com.
