How One Dad Made a Fatal Mistake

Aired on 11/25/2003 | CC tv-pg
On a hectic morning, Todd Costello put his nine-month-old baby, Tyler, in the car seat and left for the baby-sitter's house. He was so focused on getting to work that day and so absorbed with a big presentation he had to give, he drove straight to the office, forgetting to drop his son off at the baby-sitter. He didn't realize Tyler was asleep in the back seat when he locked the car and went inside. Tyler had been in the car nearly three hours before he was discovered by Todd's co-worker. It was a hot summer day, and temperatures reached 88 degrees outside. Tyler didn't survive. Here, Todd relives the tragic day their lives changed forever, and the one moment in time he wishes he could take back.
