This is something that no parent or grandparent should ever have to experience. I cannot begin to fathom the pain. I feel a little guilty even passing it along to you, but, really, maybe someone reading this will strap their child in a seatbelt next time instead of allowing him or her to be unrestrained.
A 3-year-old visiting a Corps of Engineers campsite in Montgomery County, Alabama, with his family died after an RV accident on Wednesday.
According to Lance Davis with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the family was traveling in the RV along a loop access road in the Gunter Hill Campground when the child, Elijah Crow, opened the door and fell out while the vehicle was moving, becoming trapped underneath.
Davis said the child was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. The child’s mother, who’d jumped out of the RV to help her son, sustained non-life threatening injuries.
Davis said the child’s grandfather was driving the RV.
