A father's impassioned plea to stop parents from leaving children in hot cars is going viral online.

Terry Williams recorded himself inside of his car in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 90-degree heat. With sweat pouring down his face, Williams says he wants to know how it feels to be left inside a car on a hot summer day.

"As you can see, I'm sweating, like, I can barely breathe out here. But my system is stronger than these little kids' systems," Williams said.

The father says he would never leave his children in the car to suffer like this and encourages other parents to share his message.

"This is wrong, man. We go through this every, every year. Year after year after year. It always be some fool that wants to leave their kid in the back seat of the car and forget all about them," Williams said.

The video, uploaded on June 20, has more than 600,000 views on YouTube.
