Tyke Children left in cars: 2 incidents (145* d) RE: Children left in cars: 2 incidents 05 Oct 10

I returned home to my quiet cul-de-sac to find Yellow Paint marks on the road. These was the kind of Yellow Paint Marks the Police make when investigating a road traffic accident in which someone has died!

What had happened the Mother had left her son in the car as she got out to drop something off at her Mother in Laws.

Her Son Climbed from the back seat into the front seat knocking off the hand break.
The car not in gear started to roll. The Mother on a few feet away ran to the back of her car to try and stop it!

She stumbled and fell as the car rolled over her she was dragged and trapped under the car. The car stopped after bouncing of one parked car then mounting the pavement and hitting a wall. They say you could her screams and cry's of pain even over the sound of the child's screams and cry's for his Mother.

Three fire engines were called the First did not have the right equipment the second had the equipment but the crew had not been trained to use it. She was dead before the third Fire Engine's Crew got her free.

Imagine the Trauma that child will go through all his life blaming himself for the death of his Mother.
Imagine the pain that his mother went through trapped and dragged under that car.
Imagine the sorrow of the father at the loss of his wife!
Imagine Grandmas feelings and the shock and horror of all the neighbours especially all the ones who rushed to help.

Park your car less than a foot from the curb turn the front wheels so that the car should it roll it roll towards the nearest curb.
Press your foot on the brake pedal as you apply the hand break firmly.
Leave your in car in first or reverse gear depending on which way you are parked on the hill.

If you have to leave children or pets in the car put them in a cage and padlock it!
Make sure that they have water and ventilation! Never leave them for longer than the time it took you to read this.

PS No one gives a shit about the damage to the Car!
