    Madness. Please pray along with others, that this child be spared; and returned to his parents healthy and well.
    BT, how can a repetition be avoided, mitigated, whatever? An interview with the parent(s)? Is the Child Care Board (yet) involved?

    This chills my blood: my wife and I are caring for a two-year old boy also! When he moves from the front -house, towards the bedrooms, my wife calls out to alert me; one of us, always have him in hand, or in sight. A 2-year old, running aside the road, without anyone competent holding his hand? Without assigning blame, was the driver aware that kids play in that area? My dad always cautioned me to reduce speed, and be extra careful, when driving through a residential area, near schools, stationary buses etc.
    On the face of it, someone must answer to severe account.

    Come on Webster, according to the report ‘ the toddler and several other children were reportedly running along the road ‘ What play area are trying to introduce ?? Are you attempting to infer that the driver of the car was speeding? Have you ever seen the damage that can be caused by a slow speed crash?Didn’t your Dad teach you not to run/play in the street also? Fortunately I am not an armchair judge but this is indeed a very heart-wrenching incident…..prayers especially for the toddler and all who may be involved.

    Somebody responsible should have been watching this child or baby sitting him keeping him away from danger. I am tired or innocent little children getting hurt

    Seems like the animals are far better parents than us humans.

    While watching Animal Planet or Nat Geo, I see how Elephants protect their young along the trail to the water hole.
    Some of these biological misfits that we allow to breed and then unwisely call them parents, could learn from the elephants.

    Pray for divine healing for the child. Just last week I was driving along Wildey main road and came upon 4 boys playing. A chase ensued. When the others caught up the poor boy who they were chasing was pushed into oncoming traffic. U can only imagine how the hair on my skin almost raised. I braked and swerved off of these kids almost causing a pile up. In say this is strongly agree with T-Kay. Animals certainly do a better job caring for their young.

    having read the above as a driver when ever i see children on the streets i go into protective and cautious mode, why? chidren do not think like adults especially when playing, yes the child is way too young to out and about with other children but drivers in Barbados have a sick mentality, praying for the child’s hasty recovery
