Television news: a 6-month-old girl died when she was forgotten in a car in the sun. The whole United States pity for a small student, little Bishop Curry seems to be more shocked: he still walks through the ill-fated girl's house every time he goes to school.
So the 11-year-old boy was determined to solve the problem, so that no similar news would appear. ' I thought this,' This will be the only chance for me to really help people, ''Bishop told NBC News news channel.
The boy sketched out a device that could sense the presence of people in the car. It will be attached to the seat, broadcast a warning message to the parent or the police when a child is forgotten in the car, while the device will blow cool to 'buy time'.

The problem of neglecting children in cars in the United States has appeared for a long time. According to data from Kids and Cars published in 2017, since 1994, 804 children have died in cars for reasons related to high temperatures. In 55% of compassion cases, parents acknowledge that they have not noticed the child in the car.
'No parents are perfect. I make mistakes every day as a father, but in this case, this is a mistake no one can fix , "said Curry.
Hopefully, with Oasis, there will be no more compassionate cases.
