I have a friend that lost her 10 month old in a car accident a few yrs ago. She said he was fastened but that he must have undone the belt. He was ejected from the car and the carseat was not. I use to watch this boy and still don't see how he would have the strength to push the button hard enough. Now that I have my own son, I just have more of a hard time comprehending this. I found one of his toys in the closet last night so I am thinking of all this again. His 7 yr old cousin was also in the backseat and he had 2 broken legs. So it was a real bad one but autopsy showed the only trauma to baby was to the head from windshield impact. He was in a brand new carseat with the harness straps. I always let his mother bring up the subject. I don't ask. She still calls me crying and I just comfort her and help her deal. There are some things that I do not know about it. The first thing I asked her though was, "was he strapped in." She was driving and ran off the road. It was investigated and she was never charged. My former supervisor's son is on the fire dept and was the first to find him. He said his first impression was that he was not buckled.
