Yesterday an 11 month old baby died in my state, because her mother "forgot" she was in the car and left her there for hours. The mother claims that she was out of her normal routine. Usually she doesn't take the baby with her when she drops her older boys off to school, but did this morning. There was construction by her home so she had to park down the street when she returned. She had to pee really bad and just hurried into her home. She works from home, so went in her office, thinking she had laid her baby down for a nap. Two hours go by and the mother goes to pick up her older son, finding her baby in the car, dead.
This mother has not been charged yet, and they don't know if she will be. Do you think she should be charged?
For me, I can't wrap my mind around it. I can't imagine leaving my sweet babies in the car. They are the first ones that come out of the car. Have you ever had a close call like this and want to share? What do you think about this situation?
