In the rush of getting organized for her daughter’s 9th birthday party, the mom and daughter forgot about the boy, who was left unattended for two to three hours. Unfortunately the boy remained in the back, still strapped to his seat.

According to Gonzalez, investigators learned the son knew how to unbuckle himself and get out, to which the mother may have assumed that he did. Thus, not even thinking that he didn’t. She continued on with her day in efforts to prepare for the party, which was set for Monday.

Moreover, Gonzalez added that investigators believe the Black SUV was a rental. Thus, the unfamiliarity with the door safety lock may have factored into the incident. In summary, it has not been said if the mom will face charges or not.

Cops said the mom had been out running errands for the party with the two kids when they arrived back at the Harris County home, and that the mom and other child left the vehicle and entered the house, leaving the boy behind in triple degree temperatures for three hours
