Dad Frantically Calls 911 from Train After Forgetting About His Baby Inside Parked Car.

He was on his way to work. Dad admits he was distracted and forgot about dropping his child to daycare.

“It’s kind of ironic to me that someone who’s worried about this in the past wound up doing it,” Joe Murphy said. “Thank God it didn’t go worse.”

Approximately 638 children have died from vehicular heat stroke between 1998 and 2015. No words can ever describe how a parent feels after realizing that they had forgotten their helpless child inside a car. If they could only turn back time and if only they could wake up from that nightmare.

Joe Murphy knew that there had been news about children’s death in vehicles due to heatstroke and he doesn’t want that to happen to him and to his beloved daughters. He even thought of developing an app that could help warn parents that their children are still the car.

But college administrator experienced what according to him was the “worst day of his life.”

He forgot about his one-year-old daughter, who was inside his SUV that morning.

He was tasked to drive his daughters to two different day care facilities that Wednesday morning. He knew his route: his 4-year-old daughter will be dropped to her school in Mississippi, then his one-year-old daughter to another in-home day care facility before he takes the train to Cambridge for work. He usually places his youngest daughter’s changing bag in the front seat to remind him that she’s still behind him; that way, he wouldn’t forget about her. That day, his youngest daughter wanted to play so he gave the bag to her.

Murphy was able to drop his eldest daughter to her school. But the baby in the back seat soon fell asleep and he went on autopilot.

He parked at the North Quincy T Stop around 7:45 a.m.

He boarded the train and thought about how easy the trip had been.

Maybe I’m getting better at it,” he told himself.

Several minutes later, Murphy got off at Kendall Square and was walking towards work; however, he kept recounting the events that morning. His heart sank when he realized that he wasn’t able to bring the youngest daughter to the daycare and that she’s still inside the parked vehicle.

His daughter was trapped inside his car, in a parking lot miles away from him.

He frantically called 911 as he took another train back to Quincy. The call came in at around 8:20 a.m.

The distraught father admitted that he was distracted that morning due to the Amtrak crash he heard over the radio. His daughter was also asleep so he didn’t hear anything from her when he got out of the car.

Fortunately, the temperature was mild that day. Quincy Police Captain John Duggan said that they were able to open the car door and safely get the baby out.

When he saw his daughter, he hugged her tightly and cried. Murphy stated, “I definitely felt like it was not impossible.”

No charges will be filed against the regretful father.

So What Happens If You Get An Open-Letter From An 11-Year Old? It Will Bring You in Awe!

So what happens if the big guys cannot do what they’re supposed to do? Easy, send them the little ones.

So what happens if the big guys cannot do what they’re supposed to do? Easy, send them the little ones. As ironic as it may sound, this apparently worked out when a daughter misses her daddy that much and went extremes just to be with him.

Given that NHL is pretty much the hype nowadays, Jordan Leopold took the road to sports career and landed a job as a professional hockey player in the NHL. Leopold started a promising career in ice hockey as a defense man in the 2002–2003 season followed by a tremendous inclusion in the 2006 Winter Olympics team. By this time with NHL, he has already played for seven different teams, including most recently the Columbus Blue Jackets in Ohio.

As Leopold tries to juggle being both a father to a son and three daughters residing in Minnesota and a team player in Ohio, the unfortunate fact of team trading leaves him no choice but to move out away from his family for some time. Thanks to his intelligent 11-year-old daughter named Jordyn Leopold, things turned around when she took the initiative to write an awfully persuasive letter addressed to none other than the coaches of her dad’s current team — the Minnesota Wild....

"I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice." - An excerpt from the Hippocratic Oath

Doctors and nurses understand that it's not easy for anyone to just take medicines, expose their naked bodies, and simply entrust their lives to strangers. That is why trust is one of the most vital elements that should be established between healthcare providers and the patients themselves. Patients should be confident that their doctors will never deliberately harm them in any way.

The healthcare staff's competence, knowledge, and behaviour are as equally important, particularly if a patient has to undergo a major surgery. Imagine being completely oblivious of what's happening inside the operating room (OR), and what the surgeons and nurses are doing to you. Imagine what might happen then if you're in the hands of negligent, irresponsible, and incompetent people......
