A month after Cooper Harris's tragic death, another father in CT did the exact same thing! How SICK!

Death of Connecticut child left in car ruled a homicide - CNN.com

Quote:
On July 7, Kyle Seitz was supposed to drop his son off at day care in Ridgefield, Connecticut, but the drop-off never occurred, his wife, Lindsey Rogers-Seitz told CNN last month.

Seitz drove to work, and at the end of the day he went to pick Ben up at day care, only to realize he was not there.

That was when Seitz found his son in the car. He rushed the child to the hospital, but Ben had died.
However, Kyle Seitz may get away with it and not be charged:
Quote:
Despite the medical examiner's ruling, the decision about whether to press criminal charges is made by the state's attorney, said CNN Legal Analyst Paul Callan.

"The use of the word 'homicide' in an autopsy report, though often seen in connection with criminal cases, does not necessarily mean that criminal charges will be lodged against the father," Callan said.
Death of Benjamin Seitz, Ridgefield toddler left in hot car, ruled a homicide - News 12 Connecticut
Quote:
Police say the boy died July 7 after his father, Kyle Seitz, left him in the backseat of his car in near 90-degree heat. Police say Seitz forgot to drop the boy off at day care. Seitz discovered Benjamin that afternoon before taking him to the hospital.
RIP little Benjamin Seitz, you died way too young in a horrible manner!

I wonder how many of these marriages survive after something like this.

I'm sorry- I'm just as busy as the next guy and have just as much, if not more than anybody else. I simply cannot wrap my mind around anybody forgetting a child in a car. At least when people do it to a dog they think cracking the window 2 inches is enough and they are just incredibly ignorant. But how can anybody forget their CHILD is left in the car? If they are so scattered brained how can they manage to get to work? How can they hold a job? I just don't get it.

So True!
I wonder where all the people went in this thread that was, defending the Dad and sympathizing with him leaving his son in the car

I agree. You have to wonder what else they forget. I mean, if you are so dense as to forget you have your child with you - well, how good a parent can you really be?????

I think somebody who has the brains-- take my idea --make billions and save a child- put a sensor that goes off 5 minutes after car is shut off and door is locked -sets off all the alarms as the weight is sensed in the car seat etc. simple.

I wonder why we haven't been hearing anything more on the progression of this case? I tried looking on Google, and it's a bunch of old info.
