Mom Forgets To Put Car In Park, Sending Her Family Into The Pool

March 28, 2018

A Florida mother from Okaloosa Island was headed out with her family around 2 pm on Tuesday, March 27, when she realized she left her money inside of their apartment. Leaving her husband and daughter inside of the car, she decided to run back inside for just a moment, but by the time she returned, things had taken a drastic turn!

She had forgotten to put the car into park, leaving it in drive while she raced off. The car had rolled forward, through a white fence and straight into the pool, with her family still inside! Luckily, they managed to get out of the vehicle and back onto dry ground quickly!

This is one accident that is easily prevented, but could have cost this woman the lives of her family if things had gone a little differently. Please remember to slow down as you go about your day and make sure to take all the precautions you can. It’s better to be a little late than to risk an accident like this! We’re just glad everyone here is okay!
