Mother Plays Facebook Game, Letting Baby Drown
According to UberGizmo, a Colorado woman was sentenced to ten years in prison for the death of her one year old son. The woman’s reason was that she was playing Cafe World on Facebook and had left her son to bathe for ten minutes on his own. She will be locked up for neglect for the drowning of her child. The woman claimed that she wanted her child to be independent and therefore left him to himself. It’s a tragic story, and goes to show you that not everyone is fit to be a parent.
Unfortunately, a child that young is actually just a baby and can’t really fend for himself. I hope that every person reading this blog will learn from her mistake and never leave their young child unattended. If we can learn from tragic mistakes like these, we may be able to prevent additional suffering through similar situations. May his young soul rest in peace and I wish the best for all grieving family members related to the child.
