  • The poor baby and family :(


  • OMG such tragic news. I’m so distressed for this Mum.


  • There is so much about this that’s awful.


  • Oh no, that poor family! He must’ve snuck out and gotten himself stuck.


  • I read the child was just 22 months old. It looks like he was left in the car by some member of the family. I guess we will read more about this.


  • What a sad incident. My thoughts & prayers go out to the family.


  • So sad this still happens!


  • How old was the toddler? Until what age is a young child classified as a toddler? Was the car not locked and the child climbed into it? I have seen a 3 1/2 year old do that and climb into her booster seat. Admittedly they were going out but it proves how easily it could happen if a car was left unlocked.


  • I wonder if he was left in there or if he crawled in somehow?


  • How devastating for everyone involved. Poor little Bubba.


  • I am interested to read how this all came about. If it’s another of those “I forgot the baby was in the car” stories………I just dunno what I’ll do. I’ll Beverly understand how someone can forget a child. Poor baby ????


  • Omg. That is horrible. :(


  • Such tragic news and you have to wonder why he was left in the car.

    • So tragic and there will no doubt be a comprehensive investigation.


  • I read it this morning. It shouldn’t have happened. :-( How did he go into the car? :-(


  • How terribly sad
