Governor launching child car safety campaign

ATLANTA — State officials are planning to launch a campaign to remind parents, childcare workers and others of the dangers of leaving children in unattended vehicles.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal and First Lady Sandra Deal are launching the "Look Again" public awareness campaign at the state Capitol Tuesday morning along with Department of Early Care and Learning Commissioner Bobby Cagle.

Department officials say seven Georgia children have died of heat stroke after being left unattended in cars since 2010.

Earlier this week, a metro Atlanta daycare owner and her daughter were sentenced to jail time in the death of a 2-year-old girl who was left in a van on a hot day in June of 2011.
