I'm wondering if the mom was taking groceries into the house and the kid was loose in the car. Mom distracted for a few minutes, bag splits, cell rings.

Sounds like a terrible tragedy.

what a bunch of judgemental idiots Duh and Animal lover are - poor child but absolutely terrible for the parents too. Imagine how hard it will be to live through this and have a little sympathy before you open your idiot mouths. geesh

By rhe way the article reads, it sounds like the car was equipped with an automatice transmission. None of the cars today can be put into gear with the ignition off and the key removed, and mose can't be put into gear without the brake being depressed. Sounds like a tragic, parents mistake.... Condolences to the family that has to live with the loss.
