    How do you just... forget?

    I don't understand. It's not like forgetting to take out the trash or something. It's a kid. How do you just forget a kid in the car?

    Also, say you're walking through a parking lot and see a kid in the back of a parked car, no parents around, kid unresponsive when you knock on the window and holler? Break in and get them out? Call the cops and wait? Summarily execute the parents if they come back during the rescue operation?

    Call 911 and then break glass and administer first aid as necessary.

    When you care more about getting to work on time...........

    Rock'n'Glocks response is dead on. Render aid first after gaining entry, call cops.

    Good on your wife. Did she follow the proceedings or just call and move on?

    I was one of ten kids. There were several instances when the family inadvertently left one of us kids behind someplace. It was never more than a few minutes before my parents realized it and raced back to find the forgotten kid.

    Called it in and waited to assist if necessary. There were new born triplets and to other children in the car. They almost arrested the women....

    There is NO excuse for this. Unless one goes around with their head up "where the sun doesn't shine" and that still is not a excuse. I have often said and will continue to say....some people are so stupid they shouldn't breed. Now how do we stop them?

    It's funny you bring this up. On my way to work this morning, I stopped in at the very small, local store that is only minutes away from my work to pick up my office's weekly Lotto ticket for the pool. As I pulled in I saw about a 6 or 7 year old little girl standing outside of the car, holding the door partially open. As I parked and got out, I walked to the front door of the store and noticed that there was also an infant in the car in the back seat AND the vehicle was running. I just smiled at the little girl as I walked by but when I got in the store, I felt like slapping their mother.

    Seems like these folks have everything else on their minds but what is important. What do I need to buy, texting, makeup, beer run, etc. We are so busy being busy about nothing that we are a danger to ourselves and others.

    Yep, some people prey on victims and others just beg to be a victim. And once in a while, they all meet up.
