A Calgary toddler who died after being left alone in a car seat in a closet for five hours was likely "trying to get out" when she became entangled in the straps, a court was told Monday.
That sentence made little sense upon first reading.
Ceira and her twin brother — who was likely left in a playpen for most of the day — were dropped off at 7:15 a.m. by their father on Nov. 12, 2015.
Even though Simons had been asked not to allow the children a morning nap, she put the toddler in the baby seat around 8 a.m. MT and left to run errands.
That's right. The parents who apparently love their children so much that they repeatedly left them with Elmarie Simons for the whole day. Simons who is also a very caring person decided to go shopping while leaving the toddlers behind. Simons basically tied up a young, helpless girl and left her in a closet for five hours. Now, she's dead.
At least she was very loved.
