We’ve seen it happen time and time again where someone somehow forgets about their own child, doesnt believe they’ll be gone that long and its safer to leave then sealed in the car, or just too naive to believe it’s warm enough that day for something like that to happen to them.
This case has a definite twist in it from the normal scenarios. A three-month-old baby died last Sunday afternoon at the Northwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center in Clarksdale after being left in a hot car by accident by his parents while they attended church. The mother,Catherine Collins,sings in the choir and the father ,Norman Collins, Jr., is the Minister of Music and they were running late that day. Catherine immediately rushed in but Norman stayed behind. Before going inside, Collins was greeted by a church member who asked how he was doing. Collins responded that he was fine and told the member to get the baby from the car to be taken to the church’s nursery. The member didn’t hear Collins and the baby was left inside the car.
