In a tragic turn of events, a four-year-old boy and his two-year-old sister lost their lives after locking themselves up in a car on Saturday.

The cause of death is due to suffocation, as they unknowingly locked themselves into the car as their family was busy attending to the guests.

The tragic accident took place in Gulshan Iqbal, Sukkur. They were identified as Ali Raza and Alisha.

Police said that they were locked up in the car for two hours as their family kept searching for them in the house.

By the time, the heirs reached the car looking for the children, they sadly passed away, Police concluded.

Importance of Anti-suffocation System in Vehicle

In recent years, there are more and more accidents in which children are left in the car to suffocate and die, and adults suffocate when they rest in the car, which has brought harm to countless families.

The closed environment in the car will lead to heatstroke, overheating, dehydration, suffocation, and death of people staying in the car. Therefore, a system that can detect and execute is particularly important.

At present, the relevant research on the detection of people in the car can only detect the people moving in the car, not the people resting.

Anti-suffocation Monitoring System in Vehicle is an on low power consumption dual microprocessor, combined with a power management program, equipped with a carbon dioxide sensor, temperature sensor, and camera, which has low power consumption and can detect people resting and staying in the car at the same time.

The system can effectively solve the shortcomings of the current research in view of the two situations of people resting and staying in the car at the same time.

What experts say

If you are locked in the car for 30 minutes, you would feel suffocated. This is because this is no fresh air inside the locked car and what you inhale is actually carbon dioxide, said Somendro Mohan Ghos, an automobile expert and green activist.

He said it doesn’t happen when the vehicle is on the move, as the car’s air-conditioning takes fresh air from outside.

In case of the traffic, the system sucks in polluted air emitted from other vehicles, which increased the risk of carbon monoxide inside the car cabin, which slowly poisons it occupants.
