  1. Hmmm….where were the parents of this toddler when this happened? I guess this explains the chopper I saw flying over nearby my house. Seems to me someone had to see what happened and if the parents didn’t, then where were they while their baby was in the road? Looks like a legitimate case for CPS to check out.

  2. Unfortunate as it truly is, this child is unlikely to survive due to the extent of his injuries.I know this family personally & this toddler slipped outside unoticed by his mother- when she went looking for him, she found his limp body. You maybe not have knowledge of the swiftness of the common toddler- these kinds of tragedies happen time & time again. This is the same result when a child slips into a backyard pool & drowns! The parents are left with the guilt that never leaves their hearts & a little one they will likely never see again! Please know that children of this age are very active & more times than not are faster than we are. THANK GOD this is not you in their shoes- it CAN happen to ANYONE.
