When Crystal Adams and James Chandler's mobile home caught on fire, the quick-thinking couple grabbed their pet dog and fled. But they left their young boy inside!
Police said the firefighters learned that the boy was still inside the burning mobile home when Chandler and Adams told firefighters that they had forgotten the child. Police said that was about 20 minutes after the couple had gotten out.
"They were asked numerous times by law enforcement -- I overheard at least once or twice -- 'Is there anyone else in these trailers?'" Brucker said.
The boy was conscious when a firefighter found him in a bedroom, Brucker said.
"You tuck your kid in bed, you should remember that he's still in there," Brucker said.

At least they seem to be conscientious pet owners though.
Kidding! Absentminded rednecks... how sad for that kid. :(
They need licensing requirements for having a child.
