Infant death: School teacher leaves child in car all day

Share:

heat-stroke-mainA school teacher in the southern city of Sidon forgot her baby inside the car during the day, and returned hours later to find him dead.

The teacher “had forgotten” to drop the infant at the daycare, before heading to her workplace.

While statistics are not reported in Lebanon, 43 children were killed in the U.S. last year due to heatstroke from being left in cars.

“F. S. finished her work at one of the city’s private schools, and when she returned to her car, she was shocked to find that her baby boy was still in the locked vehicle,” the daily An Nahar reported on Tuesday.

Upon realizing that her boy has died, the mother had a nervous breakdown that required transferring her to a hospital in Sidon, the same source noted.

      The child must have been thinking, “Why did mummy leave me here to die.”

      I cant believe nobody noticed, and why they did not not come to help the child.

        We like to believe there could, or should, have been that ‘chance’ salvation occur.
        But as we often see … ‘shit happens’. Especially to the defenceless.
        Humans, generally, are the least capable of self-survival, and their young least of all. As ‘societies’ they can set many rules to try to make the chances better … and yet too often there is a tendency to forget why a ‘rule’ was made in the first place – the care needed to survive on a planet with no forgiveness. We are left with ‘chance’ in the basics.
        In a recent ‘study’ of these events – which occur in cars to a larger extent, since it’s our portable oven or freezer on wheels – the idea has come to mind that the ‘busy-ness’ of the modern (citified) society sets up the conditions in the mind of the parent to forget the one small but necessary rule – never leave a child.
        It is replaced by the artificial ‘need’ to get to work ‘on time’ … while thinking about driving in crazy traffic … thinking of dozens of other things needed to be done that day or week … confused by thoughts of how, or when … and maybe answering a phone on top of it all to distract entirely from all the other things. AND SO, on occasion, the ‘routine’ of dropping the child FIRST seems, in the over-filled-mind which ‘skips’ a groove, to have been done and the parent carries on with the rest of the established routine. (distraction)
        Meanwhile, ‘society’ has strapped the child into a seat where it has learned to promptly fall asleep with the rhythm of the car since it can’t do anything else. (they often used to ‘play’ back there … now we made them conveniently ‘safe’ … and can’t put them beside us either without risk of a ticket.)
        Parking the car is the last ‘big task’ before running for the office door to be ‘on time’. Parent jumps out without looking around to at least be sure doors are locked, since there’s an ‘automatic’ device (often in hand) to do it with, and runs.
        The mind settles into the next ‘routine’ comfortably – a clock will tell it when that’s done.
        Tragedy happens in the perhaps tinted-window sun-baked oven where a body stays sleeping while over-heating past the liveable state – strapped in place. There is no ‘chance’. Society set up the conditions … and the mother’s mind skipped ONE routine.
        Devastating … to her … and affecting the rest of her life.

          ‘Society’ …. in it’s infinite techie wisdom … will first put a label on the top of an un-used sun-shade to say: ‘Before exiting car, look all around in it to check for babys or other animals’ … then eventually come up with a device to scan the interior before allowing a sweet mechanical voice to say: ‘You may exit vehicle now’.
          After a few hundred people are knocked off by exiting into traffic it will need to scan the exterior too, of course. And then, when those devices don’t work properly, people can sue car manufacturers for everything bad that happens to them when they follow instructions.

          I am tending to think this is murder. There is no way a mother could forget her baby . I bet she remembered her handbag, and looked at the baby whilst turning to get it. This case should not be dismissed so easily.

            Btru2u … it has happened rather often in many places. To animals too.
            Heat prostration can even happen to babies or small children while driving, actually, when there’s no AC … even with windows open in hot places. Yes, we need to watch them all the time. But, many minds over-cluttered with things, DO forget. Not everyone can memorize a Koran, try to apply it to every second of a life, and then remember how to tie a shoelace. 😉

    What a tragedy. People are so busy to make a living that they forget the living.
    Poor woman…she’ll probably feel guilty for the rest of her life.

      Only by editing back to one letter it seems … they don’t want you to have control of eliminating something you may have said and could be hung for in future. 😉
