That's what I'm saying. It CAN and DOES happen. Just because there are people out there who can't fathom that this would happen or who think they would NEVER do this, doesn't mean that ALL people are equal on that. I still say, the child could've been asleep, so therefore NO NOISE. The grandma forgot to drop the child off at daycare, so therefore it corroborates forgetting this baby in her car. Plus, like I said before, we don't know that she was the one who buckled the kid in, it could've been the child's parent that did that. The ones who are on here condemning this woman because this happened just don't realize that because they THINK they would never do that, or that because they think of their kids 24/7, that this woman would have too, they just don't get it. I'm sorry but have any of you ever been in that hospital, at any given time throughout the day? Do you not realize how BUSY that hospital is? Someone said she was a cath tech I believe. If that's the case, then she's busier than most up there. I've not once been in that hospital and it not be packed with people! The workers there don't have 5 seconds to go to the bathroom, let alone THINK about anything other than doing their job! But I still ask, why didn't anyone else, who would have seen that child, come forward and like I said, tell an employee that there was a baby in a locked car? Are we, as unaffected American adults, so concerned with stepping in for the sake of a child that we wouldn't say anything and that child die because we didn't? I know that, be it my place or not to do so, I would've gotten someone's attention and made sure that baby was gotten out of that car!

I guess you are just a more understanding person than me. Just because it happens or she is busy doesnt exuse it to me. BUT Im not the one who has to be accounted for it. I do feel sorry for her, Im sure that would be a burden I wouldnt even want to imagine. I just feel sorry for the baby more. Ive worked hard all my life and raised my kids all by myself, there has been many times that I didnt have time to turn around let alone any thing else BUT they are always on my mind. I always know where they are. To me, (and yes, this is only a reflection on MY feelings) I just cant imagine doing that. I cant wrap my mind around it. Im not trying to piss anyone off or anything Im just stating how I feel about it the same as you. Either way I feel so sorry for everyone involved. It is such a sad event.

I really dont know how this could happen, you get out of the car. wouldnt you see the child in the car seat. even if it is in the back no one just gets out and shuts the door and takes off walking, well I dont anyway it seems she would or should have seen the child even if its out of the corner of her eye, or at least seen the car seat, and another thing I dont see a child going to sleep that fast in a lenth of time to have forgotten that it was with her, unless its a long drive to her job and still wouldnt the child have made some kind of noise for heaven sake it was 2 years old they talk at 2... I have 2 children and they werent so quiet that I forgot they where in the car with me. just a question of thought hmmm

It is sad. My sister in law was in the hospital there, she had just delivered the day before and her room looked right out over where they found the child. My brother drove by it but thought the ambulance and police were there for a wreck or fight. it is truly sad!

That's just it. It wasn't a car, it was a SUV, with tinted windows...didn't anyone else notice that? Watch the footage on it here: http://www.wkyt.com/wymtnews/headlines/308116...

It wouldn't be all that hard to figure out why she didn't see the child. Especially if she's not in the habit of looking back at her vehicle...

I totally hear what you are saying. I have 3 wonderful kids of my own, who I cherish with every breath that I take. I have very deep sympathy for this family. People get so much on there plates these days, that it is so easy to forget what you are doing. I personally feel that I would not ever forget my child, but they are mine. My mother and I have talked about cases like this several times and she would always say "that I hope I would never forget one of my grandchildren" but that she could always see how that could happen if you were not use to it. When my children were babies, she would always put the diaper bag in the front seat so when she got to where she was going and reach for her purse, she would see the diaper bag for a reminder that she had one of her grandchildren. My youngest is 3 years old now and we have no diaper bag. I am going to suggest now that she put her purse in the floor underneath her car seat. I think each grandparent or anyone having your child for a day that normally does not, should do something like this as a reminder to them. We are only human and make mistakes. Some may be small, and some very life changing. WE are not to judge this lady, She has one Judge and that is God. Should she be punished for this, I don't really know. I feel like this was an accident, don't quite understand why for so long, and why no one else reported the child in the car, to me more than her is to blame, but in all reality she is punished enough. I am sure if she could just turn back the clock, that she would have never forgotten that child, but this is life. And believe it or not, things like this actually happens accidentilly. I know how much my mother loves my children, if this was my mother would I want her behind bars and taken from me. No, were are all humans. I am not trying to start an argument with anyone on here, but I just wanted to voice my opinion like eveyone else on here is, rather you agree with me or not, I have left everyone something to think about. Let's pray for this Grandmother, Mother, and everyone involved, even those that walked by the car that day and chose to do nothing about it, only God knows who they are. Let's also pray that the daughter will find forgiveness for her mother, because the Bible teaches us that we have to have forgiveness and honestly forgiven, or we can not go to Heaven. And I am sure that that mother wants to one day be reunited with her child. God Bless each and everyone who reads this and I pray that you will never be in the position that the mother and grandmother are in tonight and have been in since this tradgedy.

I agree with what you have said, as a matter of fact, I couldn't have said it better myself! This IS a tragedy and that family needs a LOT of prayers to see them through this! It's unimaginable, but oh-so-real. I have prayed for this family since I first learned of it and I won't stop for a long time.

This is one of the saddest cases I have ever heard of. I can only imagine what that family must be going through. The suffering that child must have endured before death is beyond anything I could possibly wish on my worst enemy, and is very tragic. That being said, people shouldn't be so quick to condemn the grandmother. It is easy to sit back and say "how could she forget her own grandchild?", but with the busy lifestyles most people lead these days it really shouldn't be so surprising. I am sure this woman would gladly take the child's place and probably will never have another happy day again. It is human nature to condemn others and think something like that could never happen to them, but it really could happen to anyone. For example, how many people reading this have ever gotten behind the wheel of a car after having a few drinks? Now, how many of the same people have seen a news report about a drunk driver that killed someone and said to his friends "they should lock him away and never let him out, or worse"? I say the drunk that actually kills someone is no more guiltly than one that gets LUCKY and makes it safely to their destination. I love all children and wish to God that no child ever had to suffer, but I can't find anything but sympathy for that grandmother. I don't condemn her as much as I pray that God will help her survive what she has done.
