Texas Girl Thrown from Car and Killed Because Swimsuit Too Wet
Breitbart ^ | Kenneth Webster

Posted on 07/05/2014 7:06:38 PM PDT by Morgana

HOUSTON, Texas--Earlier this week a service was held at the George W Spencer Funeral Home for 12-year-old Octavia Marie Watkins, according to a recent report by a local Fox News affiliate.

Octavia's death was easily preventable: she died because she was thrown from the hood of a moving vehicle.

But it's the reason she was on the roof of the car that has investigators puzzled.

Allegedly, her friend's mother, who was giving her a ride home from a local pool, ordered the girls to ride on the hood and trunk of the car because she felt their swimsuits were too wet.

I am guessing a liberal mother. Does she have an abortion Barbie sticker? I swear, leftists think kids are good for two things and two things only: brainwashing and molestation. Other than that, they just don’t give a crap. Dont get my Prius wet!

Anybody ever hear of a towel? Or a cheap plastic bag? Or having the kids make a couple laps around the pool before they get in the car? Sad!

Need an IQ higher than 70 to think of those options.

I would think there maybe legal implications if what is indicated about making them
ride on the hood and trunk. I’m not sure but I think there maybe some rules about riding
outside a vehicle, etc.

I recall riding on the roof of our station wagon. There was a skimpy chrome luggage rack on it. We often sat on the open tailgate. I’m guessing we never went over 20mph. Those were good times.

Life guards don’t like you running around the pool!

The towel should have been a given. My Ma always made us sit on ours all the way home.

“Need an IQ higher than 70 to think of those options.” Now was that before or after the women driving the car drank booze?

The mother was not driving, she was a passenger. The Mother’s friend was driving. I agree however both women should be charged, both were stupid to do this to children.

She was selfish and impatient and not a person to be trusted with the welfare of children.

So should the mother. She is culpable in allowing it.

This event happened in Crowley Tx. The female driver was apparently intoxicated.

UPDATE: Fort Worth girl dies a week after falling off moving car in Crowley

Young was charged with intoxication assault, driving while intoxicated and injury to a child.

Police say the women permitted six children, ages 8 to 12, to ride on the vehicle’s hood and
trunk because their clothes were wet after swimming at the Creekside community pool.

This is a sad story on so many levels. To think that ANY person would think the safety of children was less important than keeping car seats dry!

Props to the dead girl’s father for doing the decent thing and donating her organs upon her death. Prayers up for his and his family’s peace of mind and forgiveness.

Get in a hot car with those puppies wearing a wet swimsuit and you could hear the sizzle when your a$$ made contact.

Heck, my dog’s coat is often too wet, but towels over an upholstery water barrier seem to take care of the issue.

Very true.I worked for years in a major hospital that performed many transplants.Hearts,lungs,livers,kidneys...everything.The amazing "miracles" I saw in patients who got these organs are awe inspiring.This family's donation hopefully will give them solace that their loved one's death wasn't *completely* senseless.

This was the second time she did that.

The first time a kid did not fall off but she was arrested and charged for it. I think it was only a month or two ago.

More like Susan Smith’s sister, as she may as well strapped the child in the car and pushed the car into a lake.

Thanks for the update and picture. No further comments are needed as far as I’m concerned. Exactly what I suspected.

Let’s see...why not change from a swimsuit (a useless piece of clothing IMHO) to shorts? Why not a towel? Does the mother have a brain? Sit on the hood, it is OK by the national highway safety institute.

What kind of swim suit were these kids wearing?Burlap perhaps?Nylon swimsuits don’t take that long to dry out on a warm,sunny day.

Why didn’t this bimbo plan on leaving earlier? that way the kids and their suits would have been dry in plenty of time.

Some people should NOT be allowed to have children.

I’m thinking more of holding her by the ankles off the edge of a 20 story building and telling her ‘hmmm, you’re just too heavy and you’re making me tired, so I think I need to let you go and take a nap.’

When we were teenagers one of my friends got a serious head injury riding on the trunk of a car, at a slow speed in a church parking lot - just a little jerk of acceleration and she slipped off and landed on the base of her skull - but the driver was another dumb teenager, not a mother, not a grown woman.

“Anyone remember Plastic Car Seat Covers?”

Worse: When I was a kid my Dad had a convertible with BLACK VINYL seats. Got in that after the top was down in the sun and actually got burns on the back of my legs so bad they blistered.

Dumb design. And dumb to leave the top down in the sun.

We used to set aside time for drying, not too difficult on a hot summer’s day.
