I cannot imagine what this mother is feeling. Our children are the most important thing to us and for something like this to happen is just unimaginable. I hope the mother is not blaming herself since she seen her baby go into the house. My prayers are with this mother and I hope her little guy is going to be ok.

OMG that's so sad! I can't even fathom how the mother must feel. Hope the little boy can hang in there and make a full recovery. Toddlers can be so quick sometimes. This is just heartbreaking. My prayers will be for the family.

What? The end of the report states:

"The Ionia County Sheriff's Department says they are investigating what happened, but right now, it appears to be an accident."

Really? Why would you think otherwise?

Poor mother, my heart really goes out to you.

This mother was very careless. I only let my son wander out side in the middle of the night. She ran her kid OVER!

I pray for that baby. But NOT the mother.

I was awaiting your reply. I didn't want to start pointing fingers at the finger pointers because there were none on this topic........until you posted. My kids never fell out a window, or wandered in the middle of the night, but I don't think I am a better parent than you or any of these mothers that have had horrible accidents happen to their kids in recent days. I just consider myself lucky. Don't be so harsh to judge. It could happen to anyone.
