Especially for young children.

Did you know that within just 1 hour of being parked on a hot day, a car can reach temperatures of up to 116 degrees Fahrenheit?

And every year in the United States, an average of thirty-seven children die after being left in hot cars, according to researchers of a new study, published online in the journal Temperature.

Of course, most of these tragic incidents occur as accidents...

But more than often, they could have easily been prevented.

And as for the most recent tragedy?

Well, the father's reaction to his toddler being trapped in a hot car was utterly sickening.

It all happened on Monday the 5th of October.

Twenty-seven-year-old Sidney Deal somehow managed to trap his 1-year-old daughter, Sayah, in his car on a very hot day in Las Vegas.

We all know how hot it can get in Nevada...

So we can only imagine how hot the inside of Sidney's car must have been on that day.

He had left his keys inside the car...

And when he called for help from local police officers, he insisted to them that the "air conditioning was on" so his daughter was "fine."

The officers offered to break the window, call a tow truck or get a locksmith...

But Sidney refused any of these offers, insisting that he didn't have enough money to deal with these solutions.

The seemingly unconcerned dad told the officers he would rather his brother deal with the situation...

But when his brother arrived and offered to break the window, Sidney refused again... all while his 1-year-old daughter was stuck in the boiling hot car.

Sidney's girlfriend even called the insurance company...

But he told her to hang up when he didn’t agree with the price quoted for a tow truck, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

This is when the officers decided enough was enough.

They smashed into the window and pulled out the little girl, who was tragically pronounced dead almost immediately.

This is a crippling tragedy...
