    Default One Decision *Trigger Warning*

    This is a video on the dangers of leaving a child alone in a car.
    I found it heartbreaking to watch so I put a trigger warning on the title in case anyone reading has been affected by this in any way.

    I think the video is worth sharing around.

    As sad as this video is there needs to be more awareness because it happens too often. This made me cry my eyes out. Personally I just fail to comprehend how a parent can have a memory lapse as such and forget a child.

    It had me sobbing my heart out too
    I can understand and forgive this happening accidentally.
    There have been some horrible stories of parents just completely forgetting they had their child with them that day, a change of routine or something but to do it intentionally is unforgivable.
    I couldn't even walk away from my child like that.
    How anyone could walk off and leave the little things alone and vulnerable like that is beyond me.

    Very sad.... There is another thread on this issue and a BH'er wrote an article on the video after talking with the producers. Will try and find the link.

    I'm borderline hysterically crying after that. Why didn't the first people break the window for him poor bubba. Saving 5 minutes is not worth that

    This video should be screened on TV it doesn't matter that it may upset some people that just means the message is getting through! Too many times do we see on the news lately about children left in cars and a number of my fb friends have also uploaded photos of their own while out shopping and coming across a baby left in a car. There's so much awareness about dogs left in cars but not so much on Children and babies. Why are we so afraid to raise awareness of this!

    I'm pretty sure with more and more awareness now, no one would pass a crying baby like that. It must have happened before though, which is painful to think about.

    I agree, like the one punch advert.

    Very sad video but great message I've just reposted to my facebook page. I just hope that the message spreads far and wide. This needs to stop happening people need to make the choice NOT to leave their kids in the car.

    I understand that sometimes it's an accident but a lot of times it's on purpose and that's not ok
