Why is it always Florida? This place just has the craziest news!
Deltona, Florida mom Abbie Maldonado did not have her gun stowed away when she left her 3-year-old in the car. She was picking up her other kid from school and was walking around in the parking lot when she heard gunfire. She walked back to the car to check on her toddler, only to find he that had shot the gun through the car door, shattering the window!
Maldonado said she usually keeps it locked back in her trunk but today she just thought it'd be a good idea to put it in the side pocket of the door where her child, who was unsecured from his seat, could easily get it. Parenting.
Maldonado was arrested after the incident and charged with child neglect, but made bail. So luckily for her kids, they can still have pretty open access to her gun!
Her mother of the year award should be arriving in the mail any day now.
