Very sad. In all reality it wasnt anyones fault. The mother should have had her son near her side but i understand that when a person is running late they have no time to think. My garage door at son has censors near the bottom and it woint close if something is in the way of the censor.

Unfortunate but true, she should have held both her son's hands until the door completely opened and stopped.

This is sad but I can't help but think that they are already talking to a lawyer and trying to decide who to sue.

I think we should treat this like a gun accident and throw both the parents in prison.

That would set a good example for other parents who haven't given a thought to the fact that their exposing their kids to the same type of danger by owning garage doors themselves.

If we ban garage doors think of how much safer we would all be, after all if we can save one life won't it be worth it? It seems like every time I read about a garage door in the news it hurts someone. Why have such dangerous things around in the fist place.

Maybe we should create a new government agency to register all garage doors and their owners, and make all the owners pay to attend a class on garage door safety.

All these types of measures work so well with guns, why not apply them to garage doors.

What's wrong, don't you care about saving innocent children's lives???

This Jerk used to post as "reich kristallnacht". "14/88" are neo-nazi slogans.

Not that it matters but palmdale is mostly white, regardless of color it is a horrible tragedy for a 2 yeor old to die.

You're 100 correct!!! I tried to buy a gun the other day and I was made to wait just because I had done some time in a mental hospital. Guns, garage doors, where will it end? fortunately I was able to buy a gun for self protection in Macarthur park, Sadly I wasn't able to buy a garage door opener there.

WHY wasn't this kid in the car with the others OR just another parent that was too busy to take care of the kid while on the phone.

I think all this foolishness is a reaction to fifty years of Racism spewed out by the likes of La Raza, NAACP, Black Muslim ad. nauseum...

I think we're all forgetting the point here. An innocent 3-year old was unnecessarily killed. Doesn't matter if he was white, black, brown, yellow or green.

RIP little boy.

i happen to work with the father of Angel (that is the three year old boys name, if some of you even care.) this is a parents worst nightmare and all of you judgemental people should be ashamed of yourselves. i hope tio God that if something like this ever happened to one of your children or your friends child, you would reconsider the reaction. this is a family that should be able to grieve the loss of their son without having to see ignorant comments posted on the internet. i hope that more people will take a stand against the judgements of this family and try to place yourself in their shoes. this was a tragic ACCIDENT that will change a lot of peoples lives forever>>>> PLEASE HAVE A HEART!!!!!!!
