Keeping You Children Safe in the Intense Summer Heat

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - Combine sizzling temperatures and a dash of our famous Corpus Christi humidity, and you're in for an uncomfortable day. Wednesday was no exception.

While we hadn't yet hit the triple digits on the thermometer by 5 p.m. Wednesday, the "feels like" temperature was over the top. That means being outside, or especially in a car, can be especially dangerous for your kids.

Just this year, several deaths across the nation have been the result of leaving children inside of very hot cars.

Kiii News Anchor Katia Uriarte went Live from outside the Kiii-TV studios with Tiffany Collie, an expert with some great advice on how to make sure you keep your vehicle cool and your children safe.
