How does this happen!?

The past two days I have been following a news story here about a man who ran over his own son during an arguement with his wife. The child is four months old, so the kid did not get underneath the car. On top of that the Dad was sane enough to get his son and drive him to a hospital, stop lights show him waiting there for 3 minutes at one. The mother took a second car and stopped for a drink. how can you do that with your Child? I would loose it, and how did the kid get there in the first place, the child can not move yet!

  • That makes no sense to me at all.
    What the hell was the baby doing on the ground?
    Why didn't they call 911 instead of taking their time to get to the hospital?
    What if the baby had a broken back or neck? They could have killed it by moving it.

    Where is this happening???
    Do you have a link to a news article?

  • My guess is they were fighting outside and the mother put the baby down while she was arguing with her husband not paying attention to where she put him down at and that's why she stopped for the drink. That is terrifying. Poor baby. I would loose my mind too. :(
    I'm interested in this article as well. where can we find this at?
