The parents should have called 911......
http://www.azcentral.com/community/c...storm0122.htmlTwo major Arizona roadways remained closed Friday morning after the worst winter storm to hit Arizona in 17 years took its toll, forcing evacuations, stranding hikers and swept away a child in flooding.
Authorities on Friday morning said they believe a 6-year-old boy who was swept away in floodwaters near the northern Arizona community of Mayer is dead and that searchers were switching their efforts to trying to locate his body.
Yavapai County Sheriff's Office spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said the boy's parents tried to bring the sick child to a hospital during a powerful storm on Thursday night.
The parents loaded the boy and his 8-year-old sister into a pickup truck at their home about 70 miles north of Phoenix. Floodwaters disabled the truck and pushed it off the road.
The mother somehow made it to higher ground, while the father and two children got into the truck's bed.
The three were swept from the truck bed. The father managed to get to safety with his daughter, but the boy remains missing.
Heartsick over this one, wonder why Mom didn't grab one of the children and Dad the other??? WOW!
