This is a better  journal about this :

Over the weekend one of the moms here on cafemom lost her son in a horrific  accident.  I know this lady and have for the duration of my time here at cm.  I am heartbroken for her and the rest of her family.

Here is the story:

Posted: 1:57 pm EDT May 29, 2010Updated: 9:22 am EDT May 30, 2010

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- A 4-year-old child has died after being pinned by an SUV Saturday afternoon, DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish confirmed.The accident happened in the 3400 block of Kingswood Trail in Decatur.Police told Channel 2 Action News reporter Pam Martin that a Suburban which belonged to a guest was parked at the top of the driveway at an incline and would not start.The child's father left the location to go get jumper cables.Parish said the vehicle somehow shifted into neutral and rolled back, striking Gabriel Hinton, 4, and forcing him into a cooking grill that was against the house. The grill was lit at the time.Neighbors told Martin that they tried, but failed, to move the SUV off Hinton. When police arrived, they were able to move the SUV.Hinton sustained blunt force trauma and second-and third-degree burns.Hinton was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

I have read her own account and cant stop crying:(  Please if you pray, pray for her, if you dont please send good wishes her way.

There are two funds set up for this cause if you are led to help :

And  **EDIT** I was advised that the above would be the best address to use.

Even if it be a hope for recovery please send it her way.  I cannot fathom the pain she is going through.
