I'm glad there was a happy ending to this story. Parents need to watch their children all the time. There is no phone call, chore or activity that is more important than they are. Children easily become distracted and don't always remember rules.

[QUOTE who="Parents need to watch their children all the time.[/QUOTE]
Maybe this is part of the problem, that so many children grow up without a sense of responsibility because they expect someone to be watching over them all the time. Its impossible to protect your children from every danger, every second of every day... Maybe instead of looking for places to put blame, you have to just concede that life is not fair, and horrible accidents can happen. Obviously a very happy ending here though!

The word "alive" would have helped in the heading.

It sounds like the track team and Mr. Powers are the hero's here. He has taught them well they all came to the rescuse. A good story all the way around, for the family and the teacher and students that showed upas well. The Mom should be proud of the School she teaches at. Well Done!!!!

Not to be the devils advocate here, but 5+ minutes is too long for a four year old to be alone outside.....just my opinion.

Thank you God--Thank you that a community can come together at the drop of a hat and help out, the good old fashioned way. No red tape, no bullchip, just good old fashioned team work! This is great!

The dumb part is your spelling. Dum = Dumb There = Their
There should be a period after lessons.

Thank God!! This is great news, and a real miracle. God bless all those who dropped everything and went to help their neighbors. It is wonderful to see how generous people are with their hearts and time.
