A mother’s Facebook post is serving as a shocking reminder to parents to always buckle their kids into car seats before driving.
Jenna Rabberman shared a photo of her mangled 2015 Honda CRV after it was hit by another car while her toddler and baby were inside. Rabberman of Geneva, Illinois wrote in a Facebook post that she and her kids were on their way home from preschool when another car hit them.
Her sons, 6 weeks old and 2 years old, were OK after the crash.
“You never think it will happen to you. My boys escaped without a scratch but the paramedics told me it could have been very different had I not taken the extra 2 minutes to be sure they were buckled correctly,” Rabberman wrote on Facebook.
A photo accompanying the post showed the carseats sitting in front of the mangled car. The photo went viral, getting more than 275,000 shares.
“I will be fine, my kids are fine, everything else can be replaced. Sending thanks to God for keeping us safe,” wrote Rabberman.
