SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- The death of a child has sparked a petition online to make it illegal to leave children in cars.
The petition was inspired by Cooper Harris, who died in the sweltering heat of a car last month.
Only 19 states have laws that specifically make it illegal to leave children in cars, and Indiana is not one of them.
That's why a petition has been started at the White House website to force lawmakers to consider the issue.
It is already illegal in Michigan.
