  • oh how terribly sad -


  • So heartbreaking how careless people can be


  • It makes you wonder if the baby’s restraint was installed correctly, or whether the impact was so severe that the bolts snapped. I feel for the person/people who tried to save the baby’s life.
    They will suffer from trauma too. I notice the baby’s Mother isn’t mentioned at all.
    My condolences to the baby’s family, all relatives and family friends.


  • that is very sad indeed. would be hard to go through that. what about the mother?


  • So very sad. RIP baby girl


  • So very tragic for the family. Such sudden loss like this is always saddening.


  • Oh my gosh :( how terribly sad for the rest of the family!


  • This is terrible! Poor baby girl! :-(


  • only 6 weeks old – that poor little bubba :( Heart breaks for the family of this child. I hope that the courts deal with the driver and that the punishment is just!


  • It’s so sad to hear, maybe this might make sure parents are more aware that it is essential that all children are buckled up properly.


  • Disgusting!!! Poor bubba :(
