A 12-year-old Tennessee boy has invented a simple device that alerts parents not to leave their children in hot vehicles.

This past week we heard about to separate incidents right here in El Paso where toddlers were left in hot cars, and while one child is the hospital another tragically died.

With all these stories that we are hearing across the country about parents leaving their children in unattended hot vehicles, a 12-year-old boy has taken it upon himself to create a simple yet effective way to alert adults that there is a child in the back seat.

The Nashville native, Andrew Pelham created the EZ Baby Saver which was made using colored duct tape, rubber bands and even won him $500 at the Rubber Band Contest for Young Inventors.

Check out the video below to see how the EZ Baby Saver works.
