28 Sep 2017, Lancaster, Pennsylvania: If you ever doubted the importance of a baby safety seat, this article will sent shivers down your spine. Baby Safety seats is not only important for your child's safety, it's compulsory according to the Regulation to the National Road Traffic Act all children under 3-years-old have to be strapped into a car seat when travelling in a car.
Below is the True-life story written by a mother after she and her two young children were involved in an accident on the 26th of September.
I'm not one to post anything too heavy or personal on Facebook but guys... THIS is why you buckle your kids into their car seats correctly every SINGLE time.
Even when they scream because the straps are tight. Even when they complain about the chest clip or being rear facing. We stopped for milk on the way home from preschool yesterday. We were minutes from home.
Another car slammed into us. You never think it will happen to you. My boys escaped without a scratch but the paramedics told me it could have been very different had I not taken the extra 2 minutes to be sure they were buckled correctly.
I will be fine, my kids are fine, everything else can be replaced. Sending thanks to God for keeping us safe (along with Honda, Graco & Chicco).
Edited to add:
I'm getting a lot of PMs asking these questions so I want to add this information. My little one is 6 weeks old & my older son is nearly 3.
My car was a 2015 Honda CRV. (His name was Yoshi, may he rest in peace) The seats are a Chicco Keyfit 30 (infant seat) & Graco Children's Products 4ever. Both were rear facing.
AND YES THE SEATS ARE BEING REPLACED.
I never expected this post to be seen by so many people! I really only posted it for family & friends but hopefully it will save a life by making someone think twice about buckling their child in. It's clear that a few of you are really bad at this thing called human decency. I can't say I'm surprised, I just hope that should you ever find yourself in my situation someone shows you the compassion you are clearly lacking. ✌
