That mugshot is of a 23 year old?  Damn.  The sun must get really hot down there.

Fatal Distraction by Weingarten. Great read, like... actual journalism or something.

Skyrmion: Several years ago, Gene Weingarten's wrote an award-winning feature on parents who accidentally leave their children in cars to die in the heat. It's well worth a read.


That is just heartbreaking. Good article, but I stopped reading...

Seems like a good habit for parents of small kids is to have some kind of reminder system in place that there's a kid in the car. A cord from the carseat attached to your arm with velcro so you can't leave the car without the kid maybe?

/so glad mine are older; this could so easily have happened to me or my husband.

CruiserTwelve: detention deputy =/= police officer


I went looking for what a detention deputy is, and found this:

http://www.hcso.tampa.fl.us/Careers/SubPages/Career-Opportunities/De te ntion-Deputy.aspx

Meaning he works at a jail, prison, or courthouse holding cells.  He's the same age as the mother, and the article makes no mention whatsoever about the baby's father.  So, 2 + 2 = he's the father, and they both left the baby in the car?

So no one else was even mildy disturbed by the accompanying pic of Wesley Snipes with fists in the air at the top of the article? Game of death...

Or maybe he would date her, if only she didn't have that child.

FTFA: "He resigned immediately after his arrest, and he would have been terminated if he had not resigned,'' the Polk County Sheriff's Office said."

What a doofus. Doesn't he know that he would have received a paid vacation while they *investigated* the incident with no findings of wrong doing.

/damn noobs.

(Sure they would have terminated him. Sure.)

The Deputy was on probation, so there was a chance they actually would have fired him.

Regardless, it's pretty common for LEOs to resign to avoid sanctions for refusing to answer IA questions.  They typically get rehired with backpay after the DA drops decides not to charge them.

He won a Pulitzer for that article.  It's a great - and heartbreaking - read.  You can see how it could happen to literally anyone.

Once when traveling cross-country, I left my 2 beloved cats in a boiling car, in just the same distracted way as the article describes. Just farking forgot they were there.  Fortunately I realized it 30 minutes later and it wasn't too late, but they were not happy campers when I finally came to their aid, and I imagine it was the longest 30 minutes of their little lives.

Man, did they get some lovin' that night.  Not so cool story bro, but there it is.  I really feel for these people.

eyemarten: dukeblue219: Let's go ahead and get this out of the way:

"A child, vulnerable adult or animal can experience a debilitating or worse within minutes of being left in a vehicle where temperatures have the potential to sore to 200 degrees during Florida's summer heat. In a matter of minutes, temperatures can rise to deadly levels," an agency statement said.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one distracted by that.

Sad story. Can't imagine experiencing either side of that horror.


200 degrees??? Look, I'm not saying it's not fatal... but IIRC, in the Texas summer I got I think 130F inside the cabin and 150F specifically on the dash.

200F seems absurdly hotter though.  I've never heard anyone else even claim it could get that high.
 
2013-06-07 05:12:03 AM
How the heck are both of those people 23 years old?

I'm 32 years old, and 23 year olds usually look like babies to me. Both of them look like they're 40 years old.

As a parent and somebody who is a self described non-moron... I want to say that everybody saying "it could happen to anyone!" is in fact a farking moron.  You dont forget kids in hot cars.  That shiat doesnt happen unless you were being a shiat parent by leaving them there for any reason in the first place.  A normal parent doesnt "forget" their kid any more than they forget their shoes in the morning.  It.  Doesnt.  Happen.

I guarantee you this involves drugs and/or alcohol the vast majority of the time.  And yes, mommy's little helper counts as a farking drug, you twat.

davidphogan: <i>DCF sited a study that said 33 children in 2011 died after being left unattended in motor vehicles. </I>

The good news is that only roughly one in ten million Americans die each year from being left unattended in America.  What's the big deal?  They should bootstrap their way out of the car if they want to live.


One in ten million?

4.25 million births per year, divided by 33 deaths per year equals one in 128k people dying this way.

About on par with the weirder childhood cancers.

Normally, I have nothing but pity for people who've forgotten their children in the car. Usually it's due to a change in schedule, or illness/sleep deprivation, and they thought the child was somewhere other than the car.

That wasn't the case with this article:

http://tbo.com/news/crime/authorities-sebring-mother-was-with-boyfri en d-as-child-died-in-hot-car-20130606/

The report said that before she got into her boyfriend's car, she turned the fan on in the car, but not the engine, with the result that the air was not cooled. Espinosa told authorities that while in the boyfriend's car she would look over into the other car at her daughter "and sometimes she was crying and sometimes she was playing with her sippy cup," the report said.

Basically, she was cheating on her husband and got into her boyfriend's car and left the kid in her own car. She watched her kid dying. There are no words.

To all you right-to-lifers: there really are people who have no business having babies. Since even I think abortion is a messy business, I'd plump for sterilization at birth. The process would be reversed only for those deemed fit enough to reproduce themselves. Who'd decide? Well, until we could find a suitable candidate, I'd have to do it myself.

I have to agree with you, there is NO excuse for this.  "Distraction" is such a lame-a*s excuse I don't even want to hear it.

When you are caring for a helpless living thing that is your *first* priority.  It should  prevent you from engaging in "distracting" activities you farking morons.  I don't care if there's a lot of sh*t going on at work -- does your child never cross your mind at least once in an entire day?  You probably should not have kids.

I don't give a damn what that apologist author says.
