A baby has died after his dad drove the family car three times over the course of a day — before noticing the 15-month-old dead in the back seat.
US man Kyle Seitz allegedly forgot to drop off his baby son Benjamin Jacob Seitz at day care on the way to work on 7 July, after missing the turn-off to the infant’s daycare and stopping off to get coffee on the way to work instead, according to FoxCT.
Software programmer Seitz later drove to get lunch without noticing his son in the car, the arrest warrant indicates.
After work, Seitz went to collect his son from day care — only to be told by staff that Benjamin — or “Benjabear”, as his parents sometimes called him — had not attended that day.
The warrant says Seitz then “walked out heading to his car in the parking lot and began walking faster”.
