Sad! Baby Girl dies in East Nashville after being stuck in Truck for Hours

A 1-year old child Katera Barker was found dead in her father’s truck is East Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday according to Police Reports.

According to investigations, the girl’s adoptive father had driven her and her older sister to day care and had dropped off the older one but forgot to drop off Katera.

He reportedly returned home and used a ride-sharing app to get a lift to the airport. It wasn’t until his wife went to pick the kids from day care that she realized what had happened.

Katera was pronounced dead on arrival at the Monroe Carrell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

      Pat it does happen especially when you’re living a fast scheduled life or on autopilot. It has even happened to a couple who were both doctors. They had a schedule with a baby switch and pick p for work and one of them forgot to pick the baby from the car and just ran into work I guess because she was running late…

      When you live an automated life and something comes in the way, disaster can happen. I believe the fact that he was traveling messed up his brain. It’s exremely tragic.

      One should be discussing how to prevent these occurrences instead of blaming parents who are probably going through the worst emotional pain of their lives.
