    Ok maybe I need to find these episodes to get the message through to DH. If there's planes - he'll get it. Ha ha.

    Ohhhhh!

    I thought you were referring to the blinkers we were all approaching this subject with.

    And I could see your point. It's emotive and we're likely to be blinkered by our own experiences or those of people we know.

    I spoke to DH about it all when somebody posted the Swiss cheese article in another thread. We both see how it can happen to anyone and agreed we'd put something in the backseat that had to be grabbed upon getting out (ie I'd put my purse back there, he'd put his phone/wallet which he normally puts in the center console) back there.

    eep, not a nice story to read at all.

    Imo its on a completely different level to popping into the servo a mere 5 metre away.

    I would never dream of leaving my kids in the car, its way to hot here as it is let alone leaving them in something that will only make it hotter. No way.

    I the little one is ok

    I saw a pp mention something similar and think it's an excellent idea - wallet or phone on the backseat. Ideally phone - you dot go anywhere without it it PLUS it's out of reach if it rings, no temptation to talk while driving! My problem is getting DH to recognize that fatal distraction is something that could happen to anyone. Himself included.
    With reference to the OP, my understanding of the articles is that the mother was well aware she had the child in the car, took her sweet time coming back to the car when called and has done this before several times.
    If that's the case then in my opinion that's not fatal distraction. It's sheer stupidity and negligence.
    I lived in Darwin for a long time, and have also spent time in Townsville.
    It's widely known and even advertised on the radio/newspapers etc that children and animals should not be left in parked cars under any circumstances.
    Ever.
    It's buildup in the tropics for chrissakes.
    To me she is guilty of deliberate negligence.
    Has there been any follow up articles on this? I'd love to see more information and what the outcome was.
