Cop demonstrates danger of a hot car to kids and pets

Yesterday, I "volunteered" to sit in a HOT patrol car to demonstrate why NOT to leave children, pets, or anyone unattended in a hot parked car. Many of you may have seen the video from WSB-TV (link below), here is a more in depth behind the scenes video from that demonstration. http://bcove.me/7vsk6224

In seven minutes his pulse rate doubled from the heat stress and after 20 minutes the dashboard temperature was 177 degrees.
