Why Does This Continue to Happen?

Cobb County authorities are investigating a child’s death after a parent left a toddler in a vehicle near Cumberland Mall Wednesday.  Cobb County police tells WSB-TV, a father was supposed to take his 22-month-old to daycare around 8:30 a.m. Police said the father forgot and left his child inside his vehicle while he went to work.  When the father returned to his car around 4 p.m., he realized his child was still in the backseat. He pulled over immediately near 2955 Akers Mill Road and tried resuscitate his child, but he was unsuccessful.  The child was pronounced dead at the scene.

There’s nothing but heartbreak here.  The dad… what torment he now must live with.
