Boy creates device to keep children out of hot cars

Nashville, Tenn. (WTNH) — Many news outlets around the country are reporting stories about “hot car deaths,” after parents have accidentally left their children in hot vehicles.

But a Tennessee boy thinks he’s found the solution to the issue.

12-year-old Andrew Schuler created what he’s calling the E-Z Baby Saver.

It’s made from rubber bands and brightly-colored duct tape. The invention is designed to keep parents from leaving their children in hot cars. Andrew says he made purposely gave the device vibrant colors so you’ll know if your child is still inside.

He won $500 for it in a youth contest, but he says he’s not in it for the publicity or the money.
