Having children is a great responsibility. Parents should be fully aware that their child's well-being depends on how zealous they are and how involved they are in their lives.
But, sometimes, parents can be quite neglectful, even if they love their offspring very much. That neglect can lead to serious injuries, and even death, just like it happened to the Corona family on April 1, 2018.
It was Easter Sunday, and Liv, a 4-year-old girl, was happily opening her presents. It seemed like the perfect day, but it quickly turned into the worst one when Liv perished in the driveway, as reported by Fabiosa.
The little girl's father, Mario, was in the garage when it all happened. One moment he was watching Liv run around him, and the other he was seeing her lying on the concrete.
Liv's mother, Vanessa, had entered the car while her daughter was with her father, and started the engine. She put it in reverse at the exact moment that Liv ran straight at the back of the vehicle.
The father saw everything but he couldn't stop it. Vanessa ran over Liv, who passed away immediately. The emergency services were called, but there was nothing that they could have done.
According to the source, Vanessa blames herself for Liv's passing. She confessed that she wasn't paying much attention to her surroundings, that she only looked left once before putting the car in reverse.
The parents have created a campaign called Liv4Liv, through which they ask for help, and for people to keep the family in their prayers. They also pretend to raise awareness for such tragedies and how they can be prevented.
As reported by Fabiosa, to avoid such situations, people should follow four simple steps before entering their cars:
1- Check their surroundings for children and animals that might be hiding around or under the vehicle.
2- Make sure that there is nothing lying around that might attract children, such as toys.
3- Tell their children that they should never play in the driveway and, if they are close by, make sure that they are not moving around.
4- Hold their child's hand when walking near driveways and moving vehicles.
