Default Dont let your little ones out of your sight...



Had an incident here this afternoon in one of our township parks where a little toddler lost her life.
She wasn't out of mom and dad's sight for 10 seconds and she was gone.
Literally 10 seconds.
I just made a copy of the video from our township's camera for the sheriff dpt and I am literally sick to my stomach
and bawling my eyes out.
Guard them close. Those little ones have no concept of "what if" or danger in any form.

Say a prayer for this family's grief.

Horrible. Let us know what happened - maybe someone can learn from it.

God bless the child and their family.

My worst nightmare. I get choked up just thinking about.

So true, just Saturday night, I was grilling some burgers, the wif e was playing with the little one, she turned her back momentarily to grab a soda out the fridge and that’s when it happened, my munchkin pulled one of our metal kitchen chairs on top herself, had to bring her to the e r to have her top lip removed from between her two front teeth. She’s a little swollen, but running like happy two year old should.

My daughter will be three in a few months. So many things out there that can harm them scares the crap out of me.


Tuesday I decided to let my idiot monkeys run the zoo and took her to the aquarium. Didn’t go to well, she was pretty much terrified of any fish larger than her. $75 and 90 minutes we are Leaving. I start getting my daughter in the car seat while a Indian woman next to me is putting her two little kids in a double stroller at the rear of her car partially blocking the back of my vehicle. A few minutes goes by while getting everything squared away to leave concentrating on my daughter.

I start the car, put it in reverse and check rear and side mirrors. Nothing but now notice the lady still is at her far side door which is open but the stroller is no where to be seen. I put the car back in park get out and walk back to find her stroller with both kids inside pushed perfect centered on my vehicle with no chance I would ever see it.

I started yelling at the lady saying are you trying to get me to run over her kids. From how she reacted, I am leaning towards she was intentionally trying to get them run over. What kind of parent would even think of doing that?

Not the same story the op is talking about, but the lesson is the same nonetheless.

these damn Indian parents always tryin to get white folks to run over their kids! It’s not like they have options like medical school, dental school, rocket science school, owning hotels and gas stations and such,

The little toddler was run over by a family member. Complete and total accident.
She was out of sight of both of her parents for mere seconds...

That's absolutely horrible. I can't imagine the pain they must be going through. Prayers for the family.

Dont ever let your infant sleep with you!
I regularly see infants smothered by parents who want to have the infant sleep with them. Infant falls asleep, parent falls sound asleep then parent rolls over and accidentally smothers the infant. Saw a 5 week female 2 weeks ago that happened to.

You don't realize how much can happen in literally less than 5 seconds until you get lucky once or twice and narrowly avert a terrible scenario.

We had a local instance 5-7 years ago half a block from home at a local pool/club Memorial Day weekend. Toddler was there with aunt and uncle, and drowned in the kiddie pool with literally hundreds of others (adults and kids) very near by. Adults drinking and partying all round the pool and nobody saw the toddler face down until it was too late.
I can't imagine the aunt and uncle having to make the call to the parents, nor the parents or aunt/uncle having to live with it.

See this almost every weekend when leaving the YMCA. kids see car and dad/mom are checking email/belongings and the kid books it, not realizing cars are pulling in and out of parking spots, etc. I drive literally idle when I come and go and still wish I could go slower...

We had a similar thing last Sunday. Funeral was last week. 4 y/o boy at party with parents (class mate of my granddaughter in PDO classes) and going by the surveillance from the home owners cameras, it took 1 minute of unsupervised time for that poor little boy to jump into the deep end of the pool and drown. Makes me sick to my stomach every time I think about it.

My granddaughter has had this stuff POUNDED into her. NEVER step into a parking lot unless you're holding an adult's hand. Never get NEAR a pool unless an adult is in the pool. But they are still little ones and given the chance, all those rules will go out the window in a heartbeat.

Child ran into traffic on busy HWY 431 in Eufala.
I can't imagine what the family member where this child was or the driver of the car must be going through.
Not sure that I could take it.
