  • kids are so fast! My son sneaks into the garage when he hears the door opening, we have to be holding him or we will have the same disaster :(


  • A parents worst nightmare…..well one of them anyway


  • Hope they are both OK. A person can easily go into shock after a traumatic incident, not necessarily an accident. It wish rear sensor signals were standard on all cars including down low. Some of the more expensive vehicles also have them at the front too. They have quite a loud beep too.


  • I hope the child is ok. Scary!!


  • Every parent’s worst nightmare. I hope he’s alright.


  • Hoping the little boy will be alright.


  • Poor mum – she will relive this nightmare for years to come. Do hope the little boy will be OK


  • So sad. I saw the remainder of the police cars on the way to childcare pick up. I feel for this poor mum!


  • I hope this little boy will recover.


  • I hope the boy and family are ok. What a horrible situation to have to deal with.


  • I hope the boys injuries are not too serious, for all concerned, the mother too- who would always blame herself for what happened. Even though it was a horrible accident!
