This mother posted a photo of her baby boy on Facebook. A little while later he died, and anyone could’ve seen it coming.


The primary job of every parent is to ensure the protection and welfare of their children. Holly Wagner from Louisiana believed she’d fulfilled that duty while driving with her sons, 3-year-old Connor and 11-month-old Cameron. Both boys were strapped in, as always. Holly wasn’t yet aware of an error that would later prove fatal.

On April 27th, 2013, Holly’s boyfriend was driving with both children in the backseat. After realizing that he’d driven through a stop sign, he hit the brakes hard.

Unfortunately, it was too late: the consequences were unavoidable. There was a collision with another car leaving the boyfriend and both boys critically injured. Holly was at home when she received the tragic news from police. At the hospital, she learned that her boyfriend and older child would survive.
