School kids left to die in baking vehicles – when are lessons going to be learned?

A simple and salient question following yet another death after a teacher left a child all day in a vehicle in the heat of Khon Kaen.
When are the lessons of the past going to be learned?
Nong Yaem, 5, from Phu Pha Man district is just the latest unnecessary victim of forgetfulness and negligence, they said. Teacher Phijit Suttana, 32, left her in her pick-up all day thinking she had gone to class.
Daily News said it was just the latest death as they cited many from recent years.
In May 2012 “Por” aged 4 was forgotten by a bus driver at a Kalasin school.
In April 2013 “Euy”, 3, died two weeks after being left all day in a school van driven by a teacher in Samut Prakarn.
In May 2016 “Ink” aged 3 died at a kindergarten also in Samut Prakarn province.
While in 2017 “Kaka”, 6, died after being found in a coma. She was left all day by a school bus driver in Bang Sai, Ayuthaya.
The notion that children die from suffocation is wrong. They die from being in unbearable heat.
The temperature in a car or van becomes hot within about five minutes. Within ten minutes it is unbearable.
And within half an hour death can occur. DN -EP
