We’ve all been there as parents. We know we’re not supposed to take our eyes off our children at certain times; but life is full of distractions. And split second decisions.
This video is a sobering reminder of that.
A mom changes her 11 month-old’s diaper, and gets distracted by her 6 year-old son’s question. In only a few seconds, the table is (literally) set for a tragedy, as the baby squirms his way to the edge of the change table.
That’s when 9 year-old Joseph plunges towards the table.
This video was taken on Sept. 29, but mom Tila Levi (of Florida) didn’t post it to her Facebook page until last week because she was “embarrassed” about the incident. Three days after it happened, her husband shared the video with family (on the Jewish New Year), to let them know they were “starting the year off with a miracle.”
