If you think your child has outgrown a booster seat, think again.
That’s the message a concerned mom is spreading after a seatbelt sliced into her 6-year-old daughter’s stomach during a car accident in September.
Samantha Swartwout was riding in the back seat of her dad’s car when the vehicle veered off the road and crashed into a tree 200 feet away. The impact of the collision was so intense that the seatbelt the child was wearing opened up her abdomen.
It was a phone call no mom ever wants to get, Samantha’s mom, Shelly Martin, told CBS News.
Her daughter was severely injured. The young girl had a concussion, a deep cut in her belly, and needed stitches on her forehead.
