(KOB) The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico has honored an Eldorado High School student for inventing a device with life-saving potential.
Alissa Chavez created a gadget called "The Hot Seat" alarm system. The device utilizes patented technology to sound an alarm if a child is left in the vehicle.
Mayor Richard Berry recognized Chavez as a Good Samaritan.
"Alissa's work is remarkable and inspirational," Berry said. "I'm so proud of this young entrepreneur and her work to improve the lives and prevent tragedies. Her heartfelt invention is the exact mentality we're trying to encourage and foster in our city; identifying a need and filling it with an entrepreneurial solution."
