She forgot she put her 5 week old on top of the car! Crazy!

Have you ever placed your cup of coffee on top of your car, only to forget about it and drive away, your cup still steaming on top? Have you ever placed your baby’s car seat, with your baby strapped inside of it, on top of your car, only to forget that your little one is still up there - so you drive away?

19-year-old Catalina Clouser “put her 5-week-old baby on top of her car in his car seat and drove away, apparently forgetting he was there, not even noticing when the seat fell off the car and landed in an intersection, police said.”

The baby was discovered in the roadway, uninjured and still strapped in his car seat, by neighbors. The police believe that Clouser was under the influence of something, most likely marijuana, which impaired her judgment.

The baby is now in the custody of Child Protective Services.

I’ve forgotten a water bottle on top of my car. And when I was younger, I had an outdoor cat that liked to sunbathe on the top of my mother’s van; and he once stayed up there while my mother began driving to the grocery store (he jumped off at the first stop sign).

Forgetting that your baby is on top of the car and driving away seems unbelievable! Not hearing the car seat fall off, and continuing to drive – still forgetting – seems much crazier. He was 5 weeks old… how do you forget that? You don’t – if you can’t be responsible enough to keep your judgment intact at all appropriate times, you should not have children.

What’s the craziest thing you placed on top of your car but forgot about, and then drove away?

Here's your problem with young mothers these days. Getting high and partying and being a dumbass is more important then raising your child. Therefore creating instances like so.

I never forgot my coffee, purse, let alone a child on the roof of my vehicle. I don´t put anything there to begin with. 

I´m glad the little boy is not injured!! Poor little thing...

Right?!? I never even thought about putting my daughter on the roof. Even if i did have an arm full of stuff. She would stay inside while i put stuff in the car and then i would bring her out. And if i did sit her down it was just that. Right next to me.
