You all might want to change the wording a bit on this. There is no way she could of gotten from the drivers seat to the back of the car in time for her too be pinned up against the trailer.

Hey, use your brain and think this one out. car rolls back with child's legs hanging out! Car pins her on driver's side with door! Not the classic bumper pinning.

First off I am sure the girl got into the drivers seat of the car simply by opening the door and getting in- obviosly no adult was paying any attention to what she was doing!!! But for her to only be 5 and be sitting in the driver's seat with her legs dangling out the window far enough to pin her against the trailer when the car hit- she has to be a rather tall 5 year old!!!

To me not knowing the language well enough to even be able to tell police or ambulance what went on- is a part of negligence- certainly not helping the child!!! Thats why I say any person staying as a resident in the United States should be required to be able to speak English first. Although I am guessing these parents might be illegal immigrants from Mexico!!!

This thread was written all wrong. Comes from texting short meaningless sentences and using that same short sighted mindset to convey an idea to the public. Heaven forbid this person try to write a short story.

I hope this child is okay and recovers from any injuries she may have.
Do you part in the world, stop hating and go teach conversational English to someone in need.

Poor girl! Thank goodness the rescue crews got her out with no life-threatening injuries. Hope she recovers well.

On a different note, the article is incredibly poorly worded. The mechanics of the incident are not at all well-described.

Hope the child recovers as well! BUT if you live here SPEAK the language. I have my own children, WHY would I want to teach someone else CONVERSATIONAL English? Its EASY, if you come here SPEAK IT! Probably here illegally, anyway!

The story said her legs were dangling out of the door when the car rolled and her legs were pinned between the car and trailer. LEARN TO READ THE WHOLE STORY PEOPLE NOT JUST HEADLINE !!

We said that about the British, and I'm sure native Americans said that about us. Not to mention Mexicans saying the same thing about us when we invaded the southwest. Only arrogant snot nosed white people think we have some right to North America, fortunately, for the human race whites will become a minority in the next 50 years.
