I understand being a pet lover even though I am not one. However, would you save your pet over your child? Would you forget that your child was even in the house?
I came across this story yesterday where a couple in Beaver County, PA, got their dogs out of their burning mobile home (aff). However, Crystal Adams and James Chandler forgot his 4 year old son. After being asked repeatedly if anyone else was in the mobile home (aff), they remembered after twenty minutes that the boy was in his room. A firefighter thankfully went in and saved the boy. He ended up getting treated for smoke inhalation. Crystal and James were charged with reckless endangerment.
I seriously cannot understand this. How do you forget your child? How do you get your dogs out before your child? As many of you know, I am not a pet lover, so maybe I am missing something here. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. I am hoping when they figure out what caused fire, this story doesn't take another sad turn.
I have several questions for my readers especially the pet lovers (since I am so not a pet lover). If your house was on fire, who would you save first – your pets or your kids? Also, would you forget that your child was in the house?
