Canadian Demetrius Jones was found clinging to his power wheels toy after floating 8 miles down Peace river in only a t-shirt and diaper. The three-year old's parents called for search and rescue after losing him and two hours later he was safely on shore once more. Should Demetrius' parents be charged with child neglect?

    he should have been watched more, his parents should THANK God he is okay but I believe the time that the child was missing from them was enough Hell

    Obviously they cared enough to call a search and rescue team.

    As a parent, I know that NO parent watches a child all the time. If you do, you are killing the child with over protection. The child who is crippled by fears learned from a parent who obsessively watched, over-protected and tried to shield against all problems, is in as much trouble in adult, as the child whose parents who showed no love or concern.
    You set an older child to watch a younger child, the older child's attention wanders for a second, and WHAM! You look away to check your other children (which you'd better do) and WHAM! You hear a weird noise while you're camping, you look to see if it's a bear (you'd better check this in Canada, bear are meaner problems than rivers) and WHAM. You just cannot constantly monitor your children.
    In this case. Better to be thankful to God that the boy isn't dead and leave it at that.

    you know if his parents were watching him more closely that shit would have never happened. i think that something should happen to them. he's a three year old baby, and unsupervised at that, what do you think?

    They should be praised for buying their child a Mini HUMMER.

    Ok Whenever Commercials Or Stores Sell Something Like This Toy Car This Kid Had, It always Says ADULT SUPERVISION , I Dont Know How The Hell These Parents Would Not Be Concerned about Watching Their Kid. If They Did Not Watch, An Even Worse Accident Could Have Happened And They Would Have Been Very Guilty.

    thats what you call irreresponsible parents. yes they need to go to court, and my question is why didnt they jump in after him?

    thank you. i'm a mother of a 17 month old baby. i wouldn't have had my son at a river in the first place, but if something ever happened i would put my life on the line for him in a heartbeat.

    How do you lose your kid down the river like that and not just jump in after him. These parents need to be flogged!

    The question is how the hell did he fall into the river with his toy truck, and were the hell were his parent's???
    It doesn't sound like they were taking good care of him but I do not know the whole story but the facts given it doesn't look to good for the parents.
  • Royal W... jennifer 2009/07/15 21:36:07

    They were probably close to a ramp (boat entry to the river) and the boy just rode the truck in. Ya think your child knows NOT to do something, and probably they know, but they don't always obey.
