Parents with toddlers know what it’s like to be on high alert, every moment their toddler is awake. One wrong move or oversight can result in serious injury, or even death — that’s why kids who are on the move need to be watched at all times. You’d think that the one respite from that reality is when the child lies down for a nap, a moment or two when the parents can know their kid is safe so they can collect their bearings. This story proves that even nap time might not be safe — in fact, it may have dangers you never knew existed.

This is the story of how one three-year-old girl went down for a nap and, awhile later, woke up lying critically injured in her driveway. It wasn’t the fault of the parents or the child, but does call to attention some precautions that should be taken in every child’s room. See more of the story below.

Amber Boone put her three-year-old daughter down for a nap, ready to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Minutes later, she was disturbed by someone knocking loudly at her front door. She ignored it at first, thinking it was a salesman.
