BABY FOUND IN MIDDLE OF BUSY STREET….REALLY?
Just after midnight one day last May, driver Mike Hubbard spotted something along the traditionally busy street of South Flores near Lorraine on the city’s south side.
“I was definitely in shock,” said Hubbard. “From a distance I can’t tell exactly what it is. It looks like a dog, something moving around, I can’t really tell what it was. I started slowing down and then I noticed it’s a baby in the middle of the street.”
Hubbard stopped the bus and walked over to the child.
“To me he looked like he was eight months old with a pamper, just sitting there. I couldn’t tell if he was eating something or not. But, his eyes got real big when he saw the big old bus in front of him.”
The child’s father, who apparently realized the infant was missing, comes running out of the house and into the street. Without saying a word, he scoops up the baby and returns to his home.
Gonzales said she and her husband were in the living room when they heard the bus’s brakes and horn and they had no idea how Destiny got out that night.
“We had the door open, but there’s a screen door. I had the lock on it, but I don’t know, maybe I didn’t put it all the way and she just snuck out. I really can’t even tell you,” said Gonzalez.
Gonzales denies there are any problems in their household.
“It was an accident, that’s all it was. It could happen to anybody in the world, you know? It was just an accident, that’s all it was. It’s not like we weren’t paying attention, you know? I could have swore all my kids were in the back watching TV and they were doing fine. It was just the biggest accident and it hurts me,” said Gonzalez.
But what bothers Gonzales even more is the thought of what might have happened.
“I’m glad the bus driver, you know, saw her and actually stopped,” Gonzalez said.
The custody of the children will be determined at a hearing in a few weeks.
Yeah, okay….No problems in your house? Why is it again that YOU AREN’T WATCHING YOUR CHILD?
I cannot tell you what I would do to the mother and father of this child. I mean, another two or three feet and that child would have been under the front tire of the bus. I am sure little Destiny’s eyes did get big….wouldn’t yours?
Where on earth was DCFS or what ever state or local agency is charged with the welfare of children in San Antonio.
What a sad state of affairs we have hound ourselves in….
These reckless and careless people do not deserve to retain custody of their children and I hope they are punished to the fullest extent of the law. Sorry if that seems harsh, but this is an INEXCUSABLE act.
