Sadness

It breaks my heart...

Those three little boys who died in Camden, NJ suffocated in the trunk of a car because they were playing and the latch closed on them...no one knew. Thank God they weren't murdered, but still. How scary does it have to be to be in a trunk with two of your friends (the boys were 5,6, and 11) and know that you may never come out? To have them dying around you and know you'll be next? It's so sad.

omg, i didnt know about that!! and having you explain it like that makes it sound scarier...could you imagine what panic they must have gone through each time one of them stopped moving or breathing? dont they have ways to get out of trunks from the inside? maybe it was an older car.

yeahh they do now. There's glow in the dark handles (so you can see with the trunk shut) that when you pull it, it pops open the truck. I also think in some cars there's a way to go from the back seat to the trunk, but I don't know if the vice versa is true.

I don't know how well those work, because we were messing around a few months ago and we put my friend Mike in the trunk of Jen's car, and he said he couldn't see the handle when he was in there. It was one of the glow-in-the-dark ones, too.

wow.

ya know, I've thought about that before. how in the world is a handle inside the trunk going to get enough light in order to glow?

though you put a kid in the trunk?

You make a good point.

Yeah...we were at the movies and Mike was with us (he's 18, so he's not really a kid), and we opened up Jen's trunk because we were marveling at how clean it was, and suddenly Rachel and Katie just stuck him in there and shut the lid. Jen drove around the parking lot for a little bit while I stood there shrieking, "I CANNOT BELIEVE we just DID that!"

I know...I would have been absolutely terrified. They do have a way to do that, but they were saying that the law that demanded that the cars have an inside way to get out of the trunk was passed a few years after the car the boys were in was made. It didn't have that escape thing. What's even sadder is that the father of one of the boys is the one that opened up that trunk and found them.
