Right. As you can imagine, social media users weren’t exactly impressed with this logic:
Florida mother leaves son in car to go swimming and ‘meet sharks,’ police say https://t.co/42hwpUM8bV— Fox News (@FoxNews) September 16, 2023

It’s sad that you are so irresponsible as a mother.— Anna Berner (@CalvinK24547378) September 16, 2023
In total, the child had allegedly been left alone in the car for a total of about 44 minutes. According to WBBH, staff at the restaurant said they had noticed her and the boy in there three times in the week prior and each time, Daugherty was acting strangely. “We called the sheriff’s office; she didn’t seem drunk. She didn’t seem intoxicated,” said staff member Jenny Wray. “Something was just off.” The child, who was in diapers, ate lunch at the restaurant before a relative picked him up. “He was a sweet little boy, very well-behaved,” Wray said. “He sat and ate and watched TV like oblivious to what was going on, thank God.” “If it was me and that was the situation, I would want somebody to take my baby in and make sure he is safe,” Wray added. It’s a reminder that, while there may be plenty of strangeness to go around in Florida, there’s a whole lot more goodness to go around in the end. Hooray for the people at the restaurant — and the police, who were able to make sure this child was safe and his mother detained. Both helped avert a potential tragedy on Monday. If the facts are as they appear, one hopes that more heroes step up to make sure this child is in a safe environment and those who put him at risk are held accountable.
