Why would the person be behind bars for an accident? Just because it was a baby doesn't mean the driver did anything wrong. Let the police investigate what happened. Accidents happen.

To those who blame the parents! Are you a parent yourself? As a parent we try to do our best everyday to ensure our children grow up healthy and happy, but accidents happen. It only takes for you to take your eyes off your child for a spilt second and something can happen. You can not keep your eyes on your children every second, every minute of everyday. You can try but life goes on and you have things you need to do. To those who are parents and judge them I hope and pray nothing like this ever happens to you or your family.
To those who judge the driver, they have not released all the details yet, so do not judge this woman who accidentally backed over this baby... again all it takes is a split second, she very well could have checked all mirrors made sure the coast was clear and went to move and in that second that baby got behind the van. I am so glad that so many of you have perfect lives and perfect worlds and think nothing like this could ever happen to you. Its a terrible thing that happened and I for one feel bad and sad for all that are involved. Its never easy to lose someone especially a child... Have a good day!

This message is for the people that have rude comments to make...
1st. You were not there. You were not involved and you don't know how it happened or anything so shut up.
2nd. It was an ACCIDENT so shut up.
3rd. You are not a family member or friend of any involved so shut up.
4th. It didn't happen to you so shut up.

The people involved are all grieving for the loss of the baby and they DO NOT deserve to hear or see people's rude comments. Have some respect!

The parents should be arrested for negligence. Look it up it fits this situation perfectly. if the had been responsable parents the baby would be alive today. Sure it was an accident, no one is denying that. Of course no one wanted the baby to die but just because it was an accident doesn't mean there wasn't negligence on the part
of the parents.

I am a friend of the family that lost this precious little girl..you and everybody else on here have no right to judge the situation! Accidents happen everyday they could happen to you or anyone close to you and perhaps if they did you may understand that nobody is perfect.. the fact that you are on topix running your mouth over something that was a TRAGIC accident is disgusting ..just think how it would make u feel if this was happening to your family or someone close to you..they were far from negligent parents!

Not neccessary,
Thank you for posting. I have been reading these comments all day and am discussed with people's rudeness and disrespectfulness. All of you don't know anything about my cousin's or the family. Granted, you are entitled to your opinion but it does not mean that you can go flapping your fingers all over your keyboard all day typing it especially if you don't know anything other than what the news people have posted.

I agree 100% and anyone with even a smidgen of common sense agrees. Figures that Herkimer scums are defending the parents and unable to see the facts as n intelligent adult would. Those scumbag parents killed that baby with their lack of supervision. I hope they had a good time camping!
