ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A New Mexico mom spoke about the tragic loss of her daughter while educating people about hot car deaths.

Two-year-old Jahzel died after being left in a hot car in 2010. Her mom, Stephanie Pinon, says it was an accident.

She says she didn’t realize her husband had put Jahzel in her minivan as she rushed to a meeting.

Pinon now works with KidsAndCars.org, a nonprofit safety organization.

“Check your backseat. Check it every time you are going to come out of your vehicle because you never know,” she said.
