This happens all the time folks.
There are A LOT of working parents that are juggling too many things.
In this case the man was distracted by his job promotion AND he was supposed to do something (drop iff the baby) which is outside of his regular daily routine ... and he forgot.
Happens a lot so don't be so quick to judge.
Damn--I don't wanna pull a MaySay and say don't have fvcking kids.....but don't have fvcking kids.
Okay, I think everyobe is missing point here.
When you do something ALL THE TIME then you don't forget because it's routine and automatic.
So for a mother of 3 - she puts one here and one there .... but no matter what distracts her momentarily ... she KNOWS she has one more to put somewhere. :) In the back of her head .. she knows she has THREE.
However you you do something OUTSIDE of your routine - that's how these accidents happen.
There was a guy on Dr Phil that did the same thing. USUALLY he leaves for work after his wife .. but on this ONE day, he had to go to work EARLY so he said he would the child to daycare. Okay, everyone is rushed to get out of the house. He missed his exit or whatever, saw a car accident, got around that and starting thinking about the first thing he must do when he gets to the office. He gets to the office and makes a run for it - sits down and works alllll day.
It wasn't until his wife called and said the Daycare had not seen the baby that BAM .. he realized that HE HAD FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT HIM! He was quiet and alseep in the backseat the whole drive to work!!
Of course, by the time he got to the car ... the child was dead.
So it's not that the grandpa was OLD ... ít's that he was DISTRACTED about his job promotion AND he was taking the baby to Daycare which was not part of his regular ROUTINE. Poor guy.
That's why I said - don't judge because this happens all the time - people get distracted. So the police will not charge him I'll bet.
So don't think this can never happen to YOU .. because it can.
AWAYS CHECK YOUR BACK SEAT. There should be a gimic that will not allow the driver the exit the car .. unless he turns around and looks at the back seat .. or something like that...
I would be crushed if I had left one of my nephews or nieces ... gives me the chills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
