  • I don't even have words to say how incredibly awful that is....I can't imagine any mom who wouldn't be incredibly upset by this story. I am so sorry for your friend and I will send good vibes to that sweet little boy and his mom and family, even though I have never met them, I have kids and, damn, I don't even have words.

  • I understand being mad about it happening, but gosh they are so fast at that age. And the compressor doesn't run constantly when it has power to the unit, so its possible whoever was in the room didn't realize it was pressurized. I hope the little one pulls thru. My thoughts are with the little guy and his family.
