I don't pretend to know the circumstances of this mother but I do that as a mother I would not leave my 2-year-old son in a unlocked car by himself on a busy road.
Why, would a mother take one child with her while leaving another alone in a car. I understand that a mile is a long way to walk for any child but how scared did that 2-year-old have to be after being left in a car alone.
Did she not have a cell phone? Could she not have flagged down another car and ask for them to call help. I know that in itself might be dangerous but so is leaving a 2 year old in an unlocked car alone.
I may be wrong in saying this, but how irresponsible is this mother. This just makes my heart sick.
