  • What a terrible moment for his parents. I know it was an accident but was the baby in the car or near the car in the capsule? Doesn’t matter now though. So glad he is stable and hope he can go home soon.


  • The baby’s parents must be so distraught. I’m sure they will be “interviewed” by Family Services.
    You aren’t allowed to leave a baby in a car and there was probably no other safe place to put the baby. I hope the baby makes a quick recovery.


  • Glad to hear he remains in a stable condition. What a scary incident !


  • Such a freak accident – hopefully he will quickly recover!

  • The poor little one – such a terrible accident.
