Boy found unresponsive in car

Boy found unresponsive in car had 'climbed into back and hidden', police say

 

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-11-14/mother-didnt-know-son-was-hiding-in-car-when-she-went-to-work/...

 

so, he was in the car from say 9am until mid afternoon?

didnt the school notice he wasnt in class?

did they not make a call to a parent as to his non attendence? at which point i would have thought alarm bells would have rung?

they do still do 'roll call' first thing dont they?

 

johnny? is johnny here? does anyone know where johnny is? no? ok. jimmy, run down to the front office and give them this note (note saying johnny smith not here, please call parents)

What about this bit -

Victoria Police today said the boy's mother had dropped her children at school in the morning, drove to work and parked her car, not knowing the boy was still inside.

 

How could she not know how many kids she dropped off?  What kind of mother doesn't

wave goodbye to the kids as they run into school?

 

Guess math and stupidity are to blame for this poor kid's situation.

except 'in this day and age' (i do hate that line but it fits here) with kids getting kidnapped and winding up dead i would have thought unless a parent had notified the school their child would be away then alarm bells should ring. better to err on the side of caution i say.

maybe she wasnt paying attention fully to the kids, i dont know. but he obviously did a kid thing in hiding, maybe under a blanket, i dont know.

 

i just rekon if a kids not in class and the techer doesnt know why, make an enquiry.

not one to judge but I wonder if she was on her phone and didn`t notice when she dropped them off whether they all got out(not an excuse by all means so please  judge me)..but I have  seen many people so consumed by their bl....y mobiles they wouldn`t know if something was going to hit them in the face...so sad and I do hope the little boy pulls thru with no medical problems.

I've got to ask this question: Why didn't the boy just open the car door and get out before he collapsed into unconsciousness?

Yeah.    Thought the same thing.   He's not a toddler.   He's 8 years old.

 

Why stay in a hot car for that long?

Is it possible that once the car was centrally locked by his mother, it then, couldnt be opened from the inside?

I was also wondering if the car has a door locking system which effectively locked him in and trapped him inside?

 

I don't know much about these modern cars with on-board computers and keyless entry devices.

If that's the case then it is negligence on the part of the car manufacturer. It's a safety issue after all. What's the point of making it impossible to exit a vehicle? It's downright dangerous.

You can open the doors from the inside.   The alarm would go off, that's all.

 

Maybe he thought he would get into trouble?

More trouble than ending up in the emergency room of the local hospital, you mean?

Tell me about it. 

 

I have a 10 yo grandson and I still can't figure out his thinking, most times.

 

I think the whorls in his brain go in a different direction to everyone else's
