A mom shared a horror image of her mangled motor that in a viral Facebook post. Jenna Casado Rabberman, the mom of two children shared how her kids’ car seats saved their lives after she was involved in a horrific car accident while driving them home from nursery school.
In the image, you can see two tiny car seats that are still in a perfect condition and in the background is her completely smashed up car on the tarmac.
Jenna said that both her children “escaped without a scratch” and later medics told her that the car seats have saved their lives.
She continues, “THIS is why you buckle your kids into their car seats correctly every SINGLE time.
“Even when they scream because the straps are tight.
“Even when they complain about the chest clip or being rear facing.”
Jenna describing the day after picking up the kids from nursery school, they stopped for milk on the way home and just minutes from their house, another car slammed into them.
“You never think it will happen to you,” she said.
“My boys escaped without a scratch, but the paramedics told me it could have been very different had I not taken the extra two minutes to be sure they were buckled correctly.”
In Sabah, there are 6,740 reported death caused by road accidents in 2017 and 6,284 deaths in 2018. Although there has been a 6.77 per cent dropped last year, we hope the percentage of car accident deaths will continue to decline as we learn more about road safety.
Wondering if you have installed your car seat correctly? Get advice from stores that sell car seats or friends or families who have experience with installing a car seat properly.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
