When Rebecca Tafaro Boyer started working again after maternity leave she insisted her husband send her updates about her baby boy.
He obliged and sent a pic of their baby boy strapped in as they headed out for daily errands.
Rebecca noticed in the pic that the baby’s car seat strap looked loose, so she texted back, “fix the car seat, that chest clip isn’t high enough or tight enough.“
Good thing the husband obliged, because moments later a car struck his vehicle at 50 mph and thankfully the baby was safe.
Rebecca decided to share her story on social media to alert other parents of proper car seat installation. The post went viral, garnering more than 32,000 shares and 8,000 likes in two weeks.
