Nashville was heartbroken to wake up to the news that an infant died Wednesday, after being left in a hot truck by her adoptive father.
While we'll never understand how someone could forget their child -- especially for such a long period of time -- we are hopeful that the invention of a 10 year old boy could prevent similar tragedies in the future.
Bishop Curry V calls his invention the "Oasis" -- and already has a clay prototype of it built [and holds a provisional patent!].
Oasis would be able to detect whether or not a child was left in the vehicle, and if yes, would send text alerts to both parents and police, notifying them that a child is trapped. It would also blow cold air on the baby until help arrived. Amazing, right?
10-year-old Bishop says he was inspired to create the "Oasis" after a baby died in a hot minivan last summer https://t.co/B0YhGtXmM3— NBCWashington (@nbcwashington) February 1, 2017
