Citizens of Harlan County (( YOU HILLBILLY'S ))Learn all the fact's before you strain your 6th grade education.Now the generator was in a closed in back porch,this man has been really sick himself.The fumes were most likely slowly killing this man and he did'nt even realize it an adults lungs are much stronger than an infant.
he is a emt! he knew what it could do.he needs to pay for what he done to this baby.any emt would never put a generator in a house for no reason.

But I have gave this baby and family a lot of thought. Sometimes, I want to blame them by saying Why did they do this or that and then I think I cant say anything because I know accidents can happen like this. But what keeps entering my mind and maybe it has already been discussed and I looked over it. Did the mother have a home for herself and the baby? Why was she in a home with no electricity? Could she not get into a housing project somewhere where living conditions were safe is what I keep wondering.

I am not saying Sam didnt love the baby and wasnt good to it.. Im saying putting a generator in your home is just STUPID.. To be honest I think the mother is more to blame here.. She should have had sense enough to know A RUNNING GAS GENERATOR IN A HOME CAN KILL.
Just my opinion

The report said that the possible cause of death is carbon monoxide poisoning from the generator, it didn't say that it was the absolute cause. Why don't we wait for the official results before casting blame. There are many things that could have caused the baby to stop breathing. Not just carbon monoxide poisoning.

I feel really bad for the family that lost this baby girl.. my thoughts & prayers are with you. She is in a much better place!!! This world is a cruel one. I agree that no one should have ever had a generator in the house, especially with an infant.. but everyone says this man loved this baby... more than anything & helped take care of her. I think this was an accident & I dont think anyone should go to jail... I think the mother should really start making better choices in her life especially if she decides to have more kids. Seriously, shes a mother. Why wouldnt she make sure that home was safe. Anyone knows a generator is to be kept out of the home. I think this was just stupidity! Ill be praying for Sam... Id say hes taking it hard.. probably harder than the mother. They say the baby was with Sam more often than with her.

To change the subject a little. I had read above that the babies grandmother passed away. I was thinking just old woman natural causes. I just found this and wondering what happened to her! She was such a young and beautiful woman.

i reckon that those generators tell you rite on top of them that they aint supposed to be in your house because they can cause carbon monoxide poisoning er well thats what mine says and any body in there rite mind would know that you dont need them in the house runing or not if you got kids in there i mean they have gas in them and thats a danger so i mean what ever but in the end what yall say dont matter the report is what matters and what the cops do er dont do is up to them and no matter what we say or thank should happen dont count the damage is done but if you do have a nother kid maybe you need to take steps to make sure your house is safe from now on or not its your choice
just curious

Look, I'm not trying to put anyone down, but I do have a question? Amanda and Amy for that matter...you guys were on the pc within a very short time, like an hour, of that baby dying. Right? How in the world did you even figure out how to turn it on? If my baby, or my niece just passed away, the pc would be the LAST THING on my mind. Regardless of how it happened, and yes it is tragic, what made you think of a pc? Is it really that important to be on the internet? I had a friend to miscarry her child, and for weeks she couldn't even eat, let alone get on a computer to chit chat! Why? What was your point? I'm not saying for a second you guys didn't love that baby because even though I don't know you personally, I still think any mother or aunt loves their children, well any descent mother or aunt, but something's not right. Was it for show? Or to get a pity party? What's the deal? Please explain this to me because I STILL don't understand it and probably never will. And I'm sure most people would agree with me. Take care of your children and greive the loss of your child, niece, and quit worrying about a stupid computer so much! Trust me, children are way more important than a computer will ever be! Signed, just curious!
so sad

I feel so sorry for this family. I think people should just let the family grieve and leave them alone. I can only hope this never happens to any of us. May God be with the Whitehead family and Sam and help them to overcome their loss or atleast ease some of the pain. Prayers for them all.

NO ONE has talked about your daughter.. What I talked about was how STUPID you & Sam where for having a generator in the house.
You should be making sure your other child is safe . Not on topix.
