A 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and even above year old near a vehicle that is going to start moving needs to be held, either by the hand or picked up. Such a preventable accident. Extremely sad. Also, needs to be asked, when was the driver's vision, peripheral vision, hearing and reaction times tested.

Isn't that what a pool of experts were saying before TEPCO even attempted to waste more tax pages money, where's Abe, he can use his magic hands like he did at the IOC and state, 'It's all under control'. What a joke!

Dear me. Appalling details of a hideous event, the poor girl's parents, I just can not even begin to imagine having to know that anyone's daughter had this done to her. Beyond belief.
Can't we have a 'Some readers may find this story distressing' warning?

@LaWren: Coming into the decision with preconceived ideas and tainted views is why we need to leave the BIG decisions to the law, where logic rules. Maybe it's your experience that is seeing you write what you do, BUT... If men came in from a similar angle, we'd be screaming about how women drown their children or dropped them off cliffs, but as we know that is a terribly unjust and plain wrong way to label all women, we don't. The vast majority of us are loving, caring, involved parents.

Why aren't they being shot out of the sky? What IF, and it is an IF, but life proves IFs come and go at a rate that should no longer be surprising, what IF they weaponise one of their rockets, we're been lulled into a sense of 'It's just another rattle of the sabre' but, hey, what, this one is coming OUR WAY...

So, that's the girl in who was attacked by the 53-year-old man who attempted her kidnapping, the 14-year-old girl on that lonely road in Ichihara, she was bundled into the car but who got away because another car came down the narrow road; the 11-year-old elementary school girl from Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture who went missing for four(?) days, the 9 year old girl in Sapporo, the more recent 11 year old girl in Okayama and... Seriously. This is not good. I wonder if there's a website these sick people are using, like the dedicated sites to groping on trains, where men arrange to grope someone on a certain train; --there was an article about it not so long ago-- there seems to be some kind of 'organisation' behind these attempts are kidnapping girls.

@Know: Sounds bad. Take care. It should be set between 26 to 28. Can you get a fan at your desk? Don't drink TOO much water, that as well can be dangerous. As long as you're mellow-yellow, you're drinking enough. It doesn't have to be Crystal clear all day.

At this very moment there are numerous infants, toddlers and young children who have been left in stupidly avoidable situations that may up resulting in their death. This is not and has never been unique to Japan. The more we educate people to have a routine before they walk away from their car that ensures they check for their child the safer and better it will be; the more we invest in technology that prevents people walking away from their cars the better and safer it will be. The stupidity of supposed parents really does know no bounds at times. Selfish. Stupid and others.

It sounds really offal. Well, you get what you pay of, and if there is money to be made then someone is going to find the cheapest, most horrible thing they can bleach, flavor and fry and feed it you for your yen. Enjoy!
