Thank God, that man was able to stop the vehicle, the girl, and the dogs are safe. This could have caused a horrible accident, and many people could have been killed or injured. My heart just goes out to that little girl. The mother must have been mentally unbalanced.

How could you do that your child?

First to ask a question like that?
Then do it to yourself in front of her?
While in a moving car?!
While away from home out of state?

My prayers are with the little girl.

This is without a doubt one of the most selfish parents in the universe. Regardless of what was wrong with her, the idea that she would first ask her daughter to shoot her and then take her life in front of her is outrageous. She had absolutely no regard for the child, much less the 2 dogs in the vehicle. Her entire mind-set was focused on her and the child and dogs could go to hell and fend for themselves, if they lived. She is absolutely entitled to commit suicide, but do it on her own damn watch, alone without an audience. For God's sake, she needs to be dead and no telling what she has done to this child before her death. The only victim in this scenario is the child and really hope she gets the help she needs to recover and move on with her life. Our society is going to hell in a hand-basket with parents like this. God help the children! Unreal!

Words can not describe the horror that the Daughter and Mother were both going threw in the car, let alone in life...My heart aches for that little girl and Mom. I for one will not judge the Mother for her actions but I pray that her daughter will grow to be a wonderful lady full of a vibrant life that she deserves...I will keep you both in my prayers.

It almost sounds like lack of oxygen from the asthma attack may have caused the mom to lose it. That poor little girl...
