ALEDO, Texas – Three years after Mia Smith died while napping in a car seat, her mother hopes her story might warn unsuspecting parents – and save the lives of other children.
Mia wasn’t even 18 months old when her longtime babysitter put her down to nap in a car seat.
“I got a call while I was at work,” her mom, Lisa Smith, said. “Worst call I’ve ever had in my life. ‘Drop everything. Mia didn’t wake up from her nap.’”
