Another irresponsible mother

An 18-year-old Texas mom has been charged with endangering her child after surveillance video showed her walking across a parking lot away from her toddler son, who then died after being run over by a car.

Authorities said mom-of-two Gissel Vazquez, 18, of Houston, Texas, was charged with felony child endangerment Thursday, after her 18-month-old son, Alan Villeda, was struck by a car and killed on Wednesday afternoon.
Surveillance video of the incident shows Vazquez walking through a parking lot, cradling her two-month-old daughter in her arms. She is almost clear across the parking lot when a little boy comes into view.
Alan totters to the center of the parking lot and stands still as a white Chevrolet Impala pulls out of its parking space and drives towards him.

Police said that Vazquez ran back to Alan about two minutes later, when she saw that he was lying on the ground.
News footage taken from the scene of the accident shows a distraught Vazquez, crying while she is being comforted by someone and eventually being wheeled away while strapped down to a gurney after being given medical attention.
The tragedy keeps the high number of irresponsible parents in the US who tend to leave toddlers strapped in their carrier seats inside their cars during hot days
