Unbelievable

Two tow truck drivers tow a car and then discover a two-year-old inside.  Read about it here.


I do think that the drivers should have noticed a kid inside, BUT I think the mother's to blame here.  I cannot believe that you would leave your child in the car while you double parked and ran inside a store to chat with someone, let alone if the car is running and unlocked.  I think it's amazing that the child wasn't kidnapped.

I agree with the second commenter after the article: "Ok. You leave your child alone. In a car. Unlocked. Engine running. Go
out of sight. Talk to someone and get distracted to the point of not
noticing a TOW TRUCK TAKING YOUR CAR AND CHILD AWAY. Hmm, that's a
toughie. Let the courts battle that one out!"

I can remember being 14 years old before my mom would leave me in the car to run into the store. And she NEVER left it running.

In this age of cell phones, this mother could have had her little chat over the phone. I definitely say it's negligence on the part of the mother. The tow truck drivers had nothing to do with it.

We've had 2 people here in Cincinnati within the past year or so leave their kids in the car in the summer and the kids died. :-(.
