On Friday, a stressed mother was going to work with her two children. It was a sunny day with close to 86 degree Fahrenheit. She had the plan, to drop both of her kids to daycare one by one. After dropping her daughter to Kids Care Academy day-care, she went straight to her work. She forgot about her second child, a 3-month old baby on the back seat of her car, who was sleeping peacefully there. The car was parked for several hours in the parking. When she came back at 4.30pm in the afternoon, she couldn’t believe what she saw.
She rushed to the medical center, but it was too late.
As soon as she opens the car door, she smelled something strange, and then she was shocked to see her infant baby lying there, unresponsive, at the back seat, for the whole day. She realized what a big mistake she had done.The baby was declared d e a d at the BapistFloys Hospital. The mother still couldn’t understand what has happened, while the dad says, “he will celebrate his life, this is how he will prevent this from happening ever again.”
He decided to post the story on social media to spread awareness.
