A new device designed to prevent hot car deaths could soon pop up across the country.

Two Tampa Bay dads created what they call "Sense A Life."

Basically, a sensor is installed in a child's car seat, which is linked to a phone app.

When a parent opens their car door while a child is in a car seat, they get a voice alert that their child is inside the car.

Parents would also receive a back-up alert on their phones.
