ATLANTA (AP) - State officials have unveiled a public safety awareness campaign meant to reduce instances of children being left unattended in hot vehicles.

Gov. Nathan Deal and Early Care and Learning Commissioner Bobby Cagle kicked off the “Look Again” campaign during a Tuesday event at the Capitol. The outreach includes a web video in which Deal and Cagle urge parents and day care workers to “look again” to make sure children aren’t left behind in a car or van. The video also features the parents of two children who died.

State records show that seven children in Georgia have died since 2010 due to vehicular heat stroke.

Deal says a second look is an important reminder for anyone taking care of children, adding “you don’t get a second chance.”
