Just like children dying each day drowning in a pool. There are safety codes when you build a pool, you must have door alarms, fences, baby fences, this is the same senario. They sell locks at home depot and hardware stores that should be alarmed when a child is inside and should not be outside. They are about $5-$10 and there are locks for a couple of bucks that go on top of the door frame, no young child can open the door. Isn't the life of a child worth $10 to install these simple locks??? My friend had them on his doors and I couldn't even get out. A little safety and responsibility people. I take better care of my dog than these people do their children. I just don't get it. You have children but you don't take precautions to save their little lives. What's up with that. A simple door alarm or top lock so they can't get out and drown in a pool or go in the street. Thank God the little kid is OK and you can't blame the driver, he's on the street, these kids bolt out from between cars and run in the street. Streets are for cars!!!!

How ridiculous. I used to walk to school by myself when I was five, and before that I played outside without supervision. Of course, that was before there were motorized vehicles.

I have a 4 yo and it amazes me how he can get into things (and out of things) without anyone seeing him. I am not a helicopter parent (I do not hover over my children), but children can be curious and adventurous, which isnt such a bad thing, within limits. Nobody is at fault here (unless they find the parents left the child alone or they were inside drugged up). Accidents happen to the best of families. Cjildren are resilent, ad this child should be fine.

Wow, very lucky she didn't wind up under the truck. They need to child proof the doors in their house. Where were the parents reporter?

The parents are very much at fault! Part of being a responsible parent is keeping your child safe. That means making sure that a four-year-old can't get out the house without supervision.
Kids do get "into" things...they're kids. Parents are supposed to know better and protect them.

And this explains why you don't have children. Don't call the child a little dork. You know nothing about the circumstances surrounding this incident except for what the article has outlined which really does not amount to much.

We can now expect the goverment to provide locks for doors of people who have children. It will just be another billion dollar program.

God surrounds every child with his Holy Spirit. The Kingdom of God is for children. It is not the will of God for anything bad to happen to a child, when it does, Jesus reaches out and pulls that child into his Kingdom, no questions asked. Repent, believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Day of the Lord is at hand! The Kingdom of God is at hand!

We do not want people locking children in their home. We will prosecute
