When you’re a kid, nothing beats playing with the garden hose on a hot summer day. But here’s something you might not have thought of, a hose left in the hot sun can potentially be deadly. Las Vegas Fire & Rescue recently shared a photo of a 9-month old baby who suffered 2nd-degree burns after being splashed by a hose that was left in the sun. Officials say the water inside a hose can reach temperatures up to 140 degrees, hot enough to be dangerous to small children or animals. To be safe, make sure you run the water for a minute or two before spraying anyone.
What’s your favorite way to keep cool in the summer?
