A North Carolina man taped a video of himself locked inside a hot car and posted it on YouTube.

Terry Williams said he wanted to remind parents not to leave their children in hot cars.

During the video, Williams stated, “I’m sitting in the car with the windows rolled up cause I want to know how it feels to be left in the car. As you can see, I’m sweating, like I can barely breathe out here, but my system is stronger than these little kids systems.”

On the day Williams made the video, the temperature outside was 90 degrees. The temperature inside a car can rise as much as 20 degrees in less than ten minutes.

So far in 2014, there have already been 16 heatstroke deaths of children locked in vehicles in the U.S.

Last year, there were 44 deaths.
