Concerned parents across the UAE and Qatar state they are ‘shocked’ by the negligence shown by a couple that forgot to collect their sleeping child from a taxi in haste.....

The bizarre turn of events occurred on Saturday, with a family vacation ending on a sour note when the members hailed a taxi to shuttle them for Doha International Airport to their residence in Al Dafna.
In the hurry to offload the luggage from the cab, the family reportedly forgot their small child was sleeping in the back seat.
Doha’s ‘The Peninsula’ newspaper reported that the panicked parents realised their folly within a few minutes, but when they rushed out of the home, the taxi was nowhere to be found.
With no alternative, a call was placed to the customer service centre of the taxi company and the driver was contacted to return with the prized companion, still apparently fast asleep in the backseat.
In a statement to the paper, the state-run transport company Mowasalat said: “The parents phoned the company’s call centre and officials immediately contacted the driver. He then drove back to where he had dropped off the parents.”
Emma Price, an Arabain Ranches resident couldn’t contain her shock, saying: “How can parents just forget their child in the backseat? As a parent, it is your duty to protect your children at all costs.
“They are lucky their child was returned unharmed. But we all read the news; we know how bad things are out there.”
Adnan Altaf, a Karama resident, said: “I have three young children, and I know how difficult it can be monitoring them when you are in a public place, such as a park or a mall.
“But as a responsible parent, we have to keep eyes at the back of our heads to ensure their safety. As a family, we travel by Dubai Metro all the time.
“But, both my wife and I, ensure that the children are with us when we disembark the train. You can never be too careful with children.”
However, Michael Campbell had a different view, saying: “It was probably just an honest mistake. It happens. We should drop the lynch mob mentality and just let them be.”
