Babies left in boiling car, mom arrested

2011-12-08 22:49

Vereeniging - A woman was arrested at a shopping centre in Vereeniging on Thursday after paramedics had to break the window of her black BMW to rescue two severely dehydrated children.

The incident happened in the parking area of the River Square shopping centre.

According to reports she hit a policeman with her fist when she saw that the window had been broken.

She'd been away from the car for more than half-an-hour, a witness said.

The BMW was parked in the sun at about 14:00, said the witness, who added that there had been four children in the car.

The 34-year-old apparently opened the one window slightly before going shopping with the two older children.

"She left the little ones in the car," the witness said.

The youngest of the two is a 6-month-old baby, while the other one is younger that two.

"It was very hot," said the witness.

No response

The temperature was said to have been close to 35°C.

A car guard called police and Netcare 911.

"The children were exhausted from crying. They were soaking wet. Everything in the car was wet.

"So I broke the window and took them out of the car. They had to have oxygen at the hospital," said Netcare paramedic Mary-Ann Rautenbach.

She says especially a baby can dehydrate very quickly.

"That's why I broke the window." 

The one child didn't even open her eyes, said Rautenbach.

The Vereeniging police's Captain Shadow Mashobane said the woman would be charged with neglect, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

According to research it takes only 15 minutes for a black car to heat up from 37 °C to 64 °C, and can reach up to 88 °C.

The California air resources board has done research into black cars standing in the sun. They found that on average a white car is 4.6 °C cooler than a black car.

In addition they found that a black car reflects 5% of the sun’s rays, compared to a white car which reflects 50%.

    Totally irresponsible and cruel. She could have put them in a trolley if she didn't have a pram.

      Ibhubesi - 2011-12-09 00:17

      She should have been sterilized before she started making babies! Some people are never worthy of kids!

      Squeegee - 2011-12-09 06:46

      Another half an hour and she would have been charged with manslaughter. She should be grateful her kids are alive. Hope others reading this will learn something.

      Dwerg - 2011-12-09 07:05

      Give that car guard a Bells!

      Rainbow - 2011-12-09 07:20

      Besides the fact that the kids could have died from dehydration they could have fallen vitim to a number of other things like been kidnapped or the car stolen with them in it or both. One of the kids could also have choked. You dont leave little children alone period! The car guard deserves a reward and a raise for a jobe well done.

      Ina - 2011-12-09 07:25

      If she can afford a BMW, she must surely be able to afford a pram. Poor babies! Hope she pays dearly for this stupidity!

      Leonard - 2011-12-09 07:31

      The Mother should have been put in a trolley and pushed down a mine shaft.

      PB - 2011-12-09 07:50

      Nevermind being able to afford a pram, she should be able to afford a babysitter at home if having the kids around while shopping was such a schlep. This just goes to show, intelligence and money does not necessarily go hand in hand.

      Lila - 2011-12-09 07:50

      ...another reason why people should go through stringent tests before they're allowed to have children...

      J-Man - 2011-12-09 07:52

      I say Name and Shame this irresponsible imbecile!!

      Geraldv - 2011-12-09 07:55

      She must be good at making babies, that's why she can afford a Black BMW! She obviously couldn't give a damn about her kids. Keep her in Jail!! No bail - PLEASE!!

      Kaizer - 2011-12-09 08:07

      @lila - stupid much?

      Tanzanite - 2011-12-09 08:15

      I vote for psychiatric evaluations on couples before they are allowed to have a baby.

      Kaizer - 2011-12-09 08:31

      To all the "bright" people suggestion some form of test to determine if you are suitable to be a parent the following. 1. Who will determine what a "good" parent will be? 2. At what age do you propose this test to be administered and how will the reuslts be collated and applied? 3. What will happen if in your perfect little world when someone you deem unfit to be a parent, actually has a baby?, reintroduce gas chambers and mass abortion clinics? 4. Please explain the model on which you will base your so called test, as your idea of a good parent and mine arent the same, so we will need a standard model to apply. I will be waiting with breathless anticipation for your enlightened answers. I am a father of 2, so i am dying to see if i pass your test. Morons.

      Tanzanite - 2011-12-09 08:48

      Brightspark Kaizer - Everyone knows evaluations/screening tests won't be fool proof, but it sure as hell will pick up the 'looneys' before they reproduce and reproduce and reproduce... and btw... i'm also a mother of 2

      Kaizer - 2011-12-09 09:05

      so answer the questions tanzanite. Define the model , define "perfect" , define "looney", and pray tell how you will even begin to enforce and test the people of the the country. Maybe we can enforce it with guns and the death penalty. Read a bit more. Here's a hint. Read up on the following. Beijing Convention. The history of Forced sterilisation of the people of tibet by china. Here's another hint. "The US State Department 1999 Report on China remarked on the deteriorating human rights record of the Chinese government, including the violations of women's rights: "[v]iolence against women, including coercive family planning practices ... which sometimes include forced abortion and forced sterilization" Your stupidity is annoying.

      Ed - 2011-12-09 09:09

      @ KAIZER: dude, how can you be so naive? i have heard of bleeding hearts, but your brain must also have bled out. it is not about extremes such as gas chambers but about reality. the fact of the matter is that it is women like this who are 'such brilliant parents' that they forget about their kids, smoke in their cars with their kids etc. they then get back to their cars to find a dead child and cr out to little baby jesus about how it could have happened to them, how their child got cancer at 17 or whatever the end result is of their pure selfish stupidity. the fact is that something does need to be done to curb rampant over-breeding. kids are a responsibility, not a fashion item like a nouveau riche bmw or a good way to get social welfare. the simple fact is that humans do breed to much. sterilisation or something would be a good option.

      Jim - 2011-12-09 09:27

      @Squeegee Judging by her reaction, she was probably trying to get rid of them.

      Squeegee - 2011-12-09 09:34

      Jim, perhaps. The real issue is responsibility. She is no worse than mothers who drive with kids standing on the front seat or fathers who drive with their kids while intoxicated. She did a stupid thing. Lots of others have too and gotten away with it. Parenthood brings huge responsibility. You have to think every day about every situation.

      cheryl.kristiansen - 2011-12-09 10:04

      @Kaizer. Not big on lateral thinking, humour, sarcasm etc are you?

      Deon - 2011-12-09 10:11

      The avearge IQ in the world is getting lower as the intelligent people have 0 to 2 kids and the not so intelligent have 5 kids. Maybe in the next century most won't be able to read.

      Alan - 2011-12-09 10:12

      Another half an hour and they would have been ready to eat.

      Chantelle - 2011-12-09 10:39

      @kaizer you're missing the point.... sounds like youre actually sticking up for this woman - what we are saying, is that people, who do things like this, should not have children. When materialistic things, come before the life and well being of your children (remember - she hit the paramedic because he broke the window - instead of thanking him for saving her kids) there is definintely something wrong!!!

      Peter - 2011-12-09 11:13

      @Kaiser Please read Pulchritudinous's post again, and again.

      jody.beggs - 2011-12-09 11:42

      @Kaizer it should be done on IQ and EQ. If you fail you can better yourself , if not no kids ! Damn the man, save the Empire

      Alison - 2011-12-09 11:52

      NAME AND SHAME THAT USELESS COW - SHE DOESNT DESERVE KIDS - CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT SHE WILL TELL HER CHILDREN IN 20 YEARS FROM NOW!!!!!

      Jimbo - 2011-12-09 11:53

      Kaizer is the only smart person on this forum. The rest of you calling for tests etc are just idiots. Kaizer, keep on truckin' man.

      frangelico - 2011-12-09 11:54

      art,the children should have been removed from her care completely,let her explain to her husband/boyfreind why the childrenhad been removed,bet she won't have that black Beemer for long,my hubby never buys black cars only white Many years ago I drove a light green car(yuck)with black leather upholstery,boy did that car get hot in the highveld summers,needless to say it was sold very quickly. this womans title of mother should be flushed down toilet, she has no right to have children,if you can't even follow basic rules.One of them you never leave any child in a car regardless of age.

      Alan - 2011-12-09 11:57

      @jody.beggs I was actually thinking of something like this. http://oneyedog.deviantart.com/art/Rosmary-baby-205766920 Art work the property of me.

  • Deborah - 2011-12-08 23:15

    Take the children away from her. She does not deserve kids.

      Dwerg - 2011-12-09 07:07

      I'd like to agree, but foster children in this country are worse off in many cases

      Yurak - 2011-12-09 09:48

      I've got a 5 year old and the other day I had to run into a shop just to drop an invoice off to the cashier, and for a very brief moment contemplated leaving my girl in the car, luckily I decided to take her with me, and as fate would have it an old schoolfriend was doing her shopping at the same store and we got talking for more than half an hour. What I want to say is, it is so easy to make a stupid mistake. Don't get me wrong, this woman must pay dearly for her actions especially her neglect and arrogance, BUT PLEASE PARENTS, it is NEVER ok to leave your children in the car.

      PB - 2011-12-09 13:20

      Yurak, You make a very valid point. There is always the chance that you could be delayed while making a 'quick' run into the stores. What cancelled any excuses regarding this woman for me, is the fact that she attacked the people who helped her kids. If the woman left an older kid with the babies, I think she would not be getting so much flack, at least the older one might have been able to scream for help.

  • NatashaWhiteley - 2011-12-08 23:17

    stupid woman!!! good grief!! those poor kids. have a look at Ava's Rule - google it.

      Tanzanite - 2011-12-09 08:40

      I read ava's rule just now and I'm so close to tears... :'(

      Marlene - 2011-12-09 10:29

      Me too... Shows how, even in the most caring of families, accidents happen. She was a beautiful little girl.

  • fredahsm - 2011-12-08 23:20

    Piece of work. Why take the kids with her, knowing very well that she will lock them in the car. Lock her for the entire weekend before bail hearing...

      godesha - 2011-12-09 06:37

      Yes, lock her up in a sauna for the weekend and see how she likes it. People like her should not even have kids.

  • Amanda-Leigh - 2011-12-08 23:23

    If that carguard had not acted so swiftly, those kids would have died, I hope he or she gets commended for saving their lives. as for that sad excuse of a "mother", you drive a bloody beemer you cow, surely you could afford a babysitter if you are so pathetic that you can't take the kids into the mall with you. Please have your tubes tied!

      keith.gough - 2011-12-08 23:34

      Probably had her hands full with the other 2 plus her designer dog accessories.

      Gavin - 2011-12-09 07:45

      Agree amanda - maybe she should have her tubes tied and put in an oven every day and let out just before she passes out!

  • Denise - 2011-12-08 23:32

    Take it as read that there will be no sympathy here from anyone with ovaries.

      Hell Yes! No sympathy from me.

      TheWatcher - 2011-12-09 00:13

      or testicles for that matter

  • Brenda - 2011-12-08 23:43

    Stupid cow!!!! Was she perchance angry that her attempts to KILL her kids were thwarted?? I hope her husband has enough of a brain to realise that his wife is a total nutjob and is not fit to look after his kids.

  • christival - 2011-12-08 23:59

    And then she had the audacity to assault her children's life savers ...she can't safeguard them ..as simple as that ...no koppenology ...

  • Bob - 2011-12-09 00:10

    Charge her with assault, charge her with child abandonment, charge her with child abuse, Charge her for placing a minor in jeopardy, then declare her unfit as a parent and take away her children…!

      PB - 2011-12-09 07:53

      There has been enough reports in the media of the results of leaving kids in cars in the sun - she can not claim ignorance. But maybe she does not read newspapers - she sounds like the type who only watches crap like Jerseylishious.

      Geraldv - 2011-12-09 07:59

      She values her car window more than her children!!

  • Cecile - 2011-12-09 00:12

    Disgusting.

  • TheWatcher - 2011-12-09 00:15

    That car guard deserves some public recognition. Put his face in the paper and give him a bonus. The paramedic as well.

      Marion - 2011-12-09 07:43

      Agree with this. We have too many unsung heroes / heroines in our midst. They should be lauded and applauded, preferably on national tv.

  • Geronimo - 2011-12-09 00:34

    Despicable.

  • Joseph - 2011-12-09 00:36

    Why have a lot of babies if you can not look after them.She should be charged for attempted murder.

  • akaRags - 2011-12-09 00:41

    Punishment - (for starters) lock the woman up in a boiling car for "more than half an hour" and see how she feels, maybe then she might actually think of how her children felt instead of worrying about her broken window..........

  • Kopraal SilverStar Mohloli - 2011-12-09 00:49

    it doesnt deserve 2 be cold a mother!!

    remove her womb

      tjo, lmao!

      Michael - 2011-12-09 08:51

      It's a bit late broer - she's had 4 too many already!

  • TaniaSandraSteyn - 2011-12-09 02:00

    I was going to comment that she was a stressed-out mom running in for essentials, but no one would have broken the window unless the children were in distress, but going shopping with the older two? My mom left us in the car sometimes - it doesn't necessarily make you a bad parent. This, however, is frightening.

      Silvana - 2011-12-09 06:10

      Tania, it was a BMW. Electric windows cannot be opened once the key has been taken out of the ignition. Furthermore, I'll bet the child locks were activated. Those kids were doomed had it not been for the car guard.

      Smanga Zwane - 2011-12-09 06:34

      I can't believe you are trying to defend her.

      Yar - 2011-12-09 06:50

      @ Tania Yes it does make you a bad parent, and a complete idiot.

      nixwest - 2011-12-09 07:01

      How many times have you heard "but I was only gone a couple of minutes"?? You NEVER leave a child in the car, even if you think you will be gone only a minute. The very thing that happened in this article could happen, not only that, unfortunately in this day and age, the child can also get taken! This woman should have her children removed from her as an unfit mother - I wonder what the father of the children thinks of all of this?

      Marc57 - 2011-12-09 08:30

      I understand you Tanya. I was left in a car many times - however the windows were open, the car defintely wasn't black and we were not babes in arms anymore etc. These were really young.

      Chum Scrubber - 2011-12-09 10:52

      I don't think people got your point Tania. I did.

      jody.beggs - 2011-12-09 11:47

      @Chum Scrubber I'm with you on this ....

      PB - 2011-12-09 13:26

      Tania, yes, we all used to be left in the car WAY back then - it was a time when one could assume that no criminals would try to steal your car with your kids inside; it was a time when you could leave the windows wide open to at least allow fresh air in, for that matter, the doors could be opened by the kids.

  • adri.myburgh.hewitt - 2011-12-09 04:24

    Thank you to the car guard and the paramedics. The children owe their lives to you.

  • Irene - 2011-12-09 05:01

    No matter how hot is was, those kids should not have been alone in a car,even on a cold day !! In fact, the older kids would have been better off on their own. Most women can have babies and call themselves a mother, but how you treat the kids, really defines the word !

  • Michael - 2011-12-09 05:32

    The kids must be taken away from her and she must spend the rest of Dec holidays in an orphanage to be taught the skills of raising the kids (Motherhood 101).

  • Zion - 2011-12-09 05:56

    When I go to town my yorkie usually accompanies me. If the dog is barred from entering a business premises then I go elsewhere but will never leave him unattended in the car or at home for that matter.

      Smanga Zwane - 2011-12-09 06:32

      Dogs don't belong in malls!!!!

      Zion - 2011-12-09 06:55

      There are some worse than dogs that hang out in malls and pee against the wall. My dog has been taught manners and does not steal from shops.

      Bianca-Anne - 2011-12-09 07:08

      Zion - that Yorkie of yours ... Percy ... he is not coming back to you. He nows sits on my lap, go with me to the Mall and beach ... You will never have him back ...Ever.

      Bianca-Anne - 2011-12-09 07:10

      Correction : Your Dog used to be yours - accept it, he is never coming back. Rather refer to the Yorkie you had. And Percy does have good manners indeed. Mothers leaving Children in the car, never should had those kiddies in the first place - child abuse.

      Zion - 2011-12-09 07:28

      Bianca, You know as well as I do that Percy was sent to the Cape Town because I could just not leave him in an empty house while I am gone 8 hours a day. when I get back home in the afternoon the poor dog is almost hysterical. Further, you know that I allowed to dog to accompany you but on the basis that it is nothing more than a vocation. Yes, my dogs are entitled to what a person is entitled to:- leave. After Xmas I and my Fianc'e will be coming down to Cape Town to collect Percy so don't lock or close the doors because they may be destroyed in the process to put it gently. PERCY WILL BE MINE UNTIL THE DAY I DIE.

      Bianca-Anne - 2011-12-09 07:34

      He is not coming back - only monitored visiting rights for you. Here is the thing : Percy does not want to come back.

      Elaine - 2011-12-09 07:51

      I love this little private argument that's going on here!

      Zion - 2011-12-09 08:09

      SMANGA ZWANE: I have had the honour of reporting a trolley loaded with Soiled Baby nappies in a country wide Supermarket. Now just for you. My dogs are cleaner than that. That is absolutely unacceptable and filthy and primitive. Curiously, in this particular case the dog, on request to the manager, allowed the dog on the premises.

      Zion - 2011-12-09 08:14

      Ok, I concur that Percy, My Percy, will be exposed to a cleaner environment and DA standards. But the dog is still mine irrespective what you say. I will be collecting him in early January next year. So be prepared.

      Azande - 2011-12-09 08:49

      Zion and Bianca, get some privacy please. the dog war is definitely not for our eyes. besides, its a troll. the subject here is about babies, HUMAN BEINGS.

      Ben - 2011-12-09 09:17

      Hahaha!!! Fight fight fight.

      Zion - 2011-12-09 09:30

      Bianca: Tell you what: I will collect Mignon and you keep the dog OK. Mignon Emails me daily, and tells me how much she still loves her old school. Deal.

      Bianca-Anne - 2011-12-09 10:28

      Zion - Mignon loves her new school with Beach parties. And you not getting poor Percy back. He stays in Cape Town now and goes with me to the Mall and everywhere. Zion, accept no Mignon, no Percy ... But seriously, Mothers that does that does not deserve to be called Mothers. More concern about the window of the BMW in comparison with the health of her kids. I think we love our animals more than this woman does her own kids. I support the motiom of name and shame her but also place a clear picture on how a Mother-Abuser looks like. And many people does that ... they don't think it is dangerous. And it is suppose the be 16-Days-Activism against woman and child abuse, clearly she does not support that campaign. Maybe a fine of R10 000.00 will teach her a lesson, or lock her up for a few nights in Kroonstad.

      Zion - 2011-12-09 11:16

      Bianca, You know that, that dog is like an only child to me. If you persist with your obstructionist attitude I will be forced to seek legal advice. You could also end up in Kroonstad jail. By the way, last I heard was your so-called lawyer is in jail to so you will have company.

      Bianca-Anne - 2011-12-09 13:01

      Who is the so called laywer that are practical in jail ... I don't mix with criminals... or with people leaving children in cars ... I am a law abiding citizen with a Yorkie (your Yorkie).

  • ilze.stock - 2011-12-09 06:03

    Shocking! As inconvenient as it may sometimes be to take my children with me into the shops, I'd never even consider leaving them in my car... and I have a white one...

  • Silvana - 2011-12-09 06:03

    Who cares which colour reflects heat. Children and animals should not be left in a car parked in the sun. That's it. It happens over and over again. No one seems to listen. It's the same as children left unattended by the swimming pool. Drownings happen every summer. This woman should be severely punished, all the more so because she seemed to care more about her BMW than the welfare of the kids.

  • Vivian - 2011-12-09 06:04

    Good call on the car guard to inform authorities and in turn saved two precious little lives, well done bro........

  • makesuthink - 2011-12-09 06:39

    Since this idiot of a female(cannot call her a mother) cares more about her Beemer than her children do the following 1) takes the children away from her 2) sterilise her and finally Take away her beemer and cancel her drivers licence That will teach her Also please do call her a cow because all cows look after their calves

      Vegi - 2011-12-09 06:44

      Take her licence for what exactly. It is her husband who is at fault. Why did he sleep with an imbecile.

      makesuthink - 2011-12-09 06:53

      Vegi When her licence has been taken awat she cannot take any other children with her in a car she has to be taken by somebody else who should be more responsible. how do you know if your partner is not going to do something irresponsable so you cannot blame the husband. Bet you that when he found out he wntaed to m--- her

      Ian - 2011-12-09 06:55

      what did the cows do to be compared to her

  • Col - 2011-12-09 06:53

    The article doesn't refer to her as the mother. Maybe the dumb b_tch was supposed to be looking after someone elses kids. The law really needs to be harsh in this instance.

  • Ian - 2011-12-09 06:54

    here we go again, comparing people like this to animals, I wish you would all stop this practice, animals do not treat there young this way, only stupid humans do, this women is retarded, she should not be allowed to have babies, what is sad is she has a bmw,her husbands money will pay off the prosecuter

      Michael - 2011-12-09 09:02

      Here we go again - why do you say it is the husband who has the fur-lined wallet. How do you know their financial standing? Don't come with selective suggestions!

      Foc - 2011-12-09 09:49

      Some animals EAT their young so dont be so PC about animals ....

  • Heather - 2011-12-09 06:56

    Take them away from her never to give them back. Disgusting woman.

  • raegan.mcreed - 2011-12-09 07:03

    take the car away from her, let the bitch use public transport!

      Michael - 2011-12-09 10:13

      I'm not siding with her - but have you tried public transport in Vereeniging? Zilch/zero/niks/nothing!

      raegan.mcreed - 2011-12-09 10:37

      @Michael,give her a bicycle with a shopping basket attached if all fails, she is such a incompetent mother *shakes head with anger*

  • hellochristie - 2011-12-09 07:13

    She hit the policeman because she saw her window had been broken. They rescued her kids from certain death and she cares more about her car window than her two dehydrated babies? Where did she get her parenting skills from? A lucky packet? Well done to the Car Guard for caring enough to call for help.

  • malcolm - 2011-12-09 07:15

    Raymond, Yes remove her womb. Preferably cut it off from her neck.

      Michael - 2011-12-09 09:03

      It' a bit late - i.e. if all 4 children are hers!

  • Cameronl - 2011-12-09 07:18

    WTF!!!!!! Put her in that car, let her suffer like they did, what stupid cow. She may as well be charged with attempted murder

  • Moi - 2011-12-09 07:18

    Absolutely shocking. She is very clearly an unfit parent and should not be allowed to keep the children. There is no excuse for her behaviour.

  • Ina - 2011-12-09 07:23

    Publish her name, so everybody can know what a horrid mother she is (or carer, as we do not know for sure if she is indeed the mother) but that she should be shamed and shunned is for sure. Poor babies! I hope they were not too traumatised by this neglect.

  • kritzinger - 2011-12-09 07:24

    Only one thing left to do. Fix this woman so she can't breed again.

  • Siso - 2011-12-09 07:26

    She's totally irresponsible and she is not worthy of being a mother while other parents struggle to have kids, she should have left the older ones instead and took the little ones or maybe the little ones are not hers. Thanks to the car-guard for saving those kids lives and the guy derseve some sort of recognition. I dont agree with those of you guys calling this bi*** a cow, cows do better than lomfazi ...

  • ivan.coetzee2 - 2011-12-09 07:26

    Attempted murder is a more appropriate charge, well don to the car guard and all who helped these kids out.

  • Kathleen - 2011-12-09 07:26

    Let's hope the magistrate is a child-loving person and throws the book at her. She mustn't be jailed but made to give 50% of her income to a children's home. What a pity we no longer put criminals in the stocks!

  • Bernadette - 2011-12-09 07:30

    Oh My Word!!......shocking!!! and she has the cheek to fist the policeman. Throw the legal book at her and throw her into jail. She's totally unfit to qualify for the title of Mother!! Disgusting

  • phillip.havenga - 2011-12-09 07:32

    This cargaurd deserves a commendation! That stupid cow deserves to spend some time in jail.

  • Fredster69 - 2011-12-09 07:33

    She must be sent for psyciatric help

  • Siso - 2011-12-09 07:36

  • bianca.cunningham - 2011-12-09 07:36

    Well done to everyone that responded so quickly! Some people just cannot think further than their noses!

  • Gavin - 2011-12-09 07:36

    Big up to the Car Guard, who through his vigilance called the Emergency Services. To the mother, you're an UNFIT mother. Disgraceful woman!!

  • Marion - 2011-12-09 07:40

    This ignorant and self-centred woman was more concerned about her car window than the safety of her children! Even discounting the killer heat in the car, she put her children at risk of being abducted. Put all these children into foster care until she proves she can be a good mother.

      Michael - 2011-12-09 09:07

      If you know River Square shopping centre then there is very little chance of the children being abducted. Don't suggest such a thing if you know f'call about the place!

      Marion - 2011-12-09 11:21

      @Michael. No I don't know River Square shopping mall. What I do know about is parenting. However, I am glad to see in your comment that you say 'very little chance of the children being abducted'. 'Very little' being the important words in this sentence. So why don't you shut the f* up if there is even a minute chance of the kids being abducted.

      PB - 2011-12-09 13:34

      Michael, I DO know River Square and your reaction is way over the top. It is like saying nothing bad can happen at a church bazaar. What makes you so sure that a crime can not take place in River Square?

  • Cara - 2011-12-09 07:42

    I literally have no words.. This is such a disgrace. What is a parent thinking to leave their two small babies in a boiilng hot car? WHO DOES THAT??? No words..
