- A video of a toddler left alone inside a parked SUV in Pasig outraged netizens
- The video uploader accused the parents of drinking in a bar while their child was inside the car
- However, the father of the child denied the allegation
Netizens were outraged after a 1-year-old child was allegedly left inside a car in a parking lot in Ortigas, Pasig City by his parents, who were reportedly drinking in the early morning.
KAMI learned that the father of the child completely denied the allegation.
In an interview with GMA News, the father said that they went to Ortigas because they have a restaurant there.
When they arrived at the parking lot, they left the child for several minutes, not hours, because they did not want to wake him up.
However, the dad said that they rolled down one of the windows slightly so that there would be space for air to enter the SUV.
One of their employees agreed with the father’s story.
"Siguro mga 3:30 o mag-fo-four, a, inantok na 'yong bata, sinabi sa sir ko na baka puwedeng patulugin ulit. So no'ng nakatulog dun, a, tapos nagpaluto 'yong sir ko ng pagkain ko muna, pinagluto ko ng pagkain siya muna," the man who worked for the couple said.
"Maya-maya 'andyan na naman 'yong guwardya. Sabi no'ng guwardya, gising daw 'yong bata tapos may nagwawala na raw dun. Napi-picturan daw, 'yong bata kasi nga matagal na raw do'n pero sandaling-sandali lang 'yon," he explained.
According to CNN, about 36 children die in the US due to being left inside a parked car.
