I will NEVER understand how people forget their kids in the car... like c'mon.

Very very sad.

My dad is in the process of developing something that sounds an alarm if more than ten pounds is in the car set after the key is taken out of the ignition.

Put your purse/money/something you have to get out of the car next to your baby.

I honestly don't see how you can forget but it's tragic when it happens.

oh god....I'm sorry but just how do you forget that your child is in the car and go to work all day? I think about my son 24/7 so I just don't understand how that can happen.

Me either. I don't get it. Even when we don't have our kids with us I still always check to make sure they aren't in the car. It's just a reflex.

This is so sad and it breaks my heart.

To the people who are saying "how do you just forget your kids?" I'm not defending it and it doesn't make it less horrible but i watched an interview with a woman who lost her 1 yea old daughter by leaving her in the car all day and she said that normally her husband took her to day care on his way to work but he was running late so she had to. It wasn't her normal routine and her daughter had fallen asleep in the backseat so she wasn't making any noise and she just forgot that she had her with her because normally she wouldn't and would just head straight to work. She said she was in the car thinking about things she had to finish that day, picking up dry cleaning, groceries and dinner. She went straight to work and completely forgot and her poor baby died during the day, she discovered her when she went back out to the car at the end if the day. So sad but I can imagine an exhausted over worked mom just forgetting in an instance like that.

Same here! How can one possibly forget their child is in the car. First of all there's this biiiig car seat that I'm pretty sure you'd be able to see and second it's not like someone snuck around and hid your child some place in your vehicle. Just blows my mind!

That is truly devastating. I can't help but think of how that poor child was probably crying for hours in a hot car all alone. Makes me so sad. RIP little boy <3
