Child Advocates Remind Parents to “Look Before You Lock”

In an effort to prevent the death of another child left in a hot car, Connecticut's child advocates have launched a public service campaign reminding parents to "Look Before You Lock."

Raising awareness around this issue followed the death last year of 15-month-old Benjamin Seitz, the Ridgefield toddler who died after being left in a hot car by his dad.

The President of Connecticut Children's Medical Center was joined by Senators Richard Blumenthal (D) and Chris Murphy (D), as well as child advocates from Connecticut Safe Kids and other organizations to kick off the campaign, "Where's Baby? Look Before You Lock," now in its second year.

The public service campaign is funded by the Department of Transportation.
