Mom Left Her Baby Alone In Her Bed Room, Then She Heard Her Husband’s Screams

Published

At the end of February, Carrie and Larry Volmer from Fort Worth, Texas, put their 17-month-old daughter to bed like it was any other night. She’d cried a little bit, but as usual, after a couple of minutes, she was asleep. Unfortunately for this happy family, however, they were about to discover something terrible the next morning that would change their lives forever.

The married couple had set up a happy home with their two children, Jackson, three, and Sammy, 17 months. With everything in place, the four of them were leading an idyllic life. Carrie would likely never have believed that something so awful was lying in store for them…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

It was Larry, Sammy’s father, who made the hellish discovery on the fateful day Larry had to endure something that no parent should ever have to. He walked in to find the princess’s lifeless body in her crib.

The desperation and screeching panic in my husband’s voice the next morning as he went to retrieve her from upstairs is something I’ll never forget, Carrie subsequently wrote on Facebook.

In April 2016, in the family home, Sammy’s bedroom was on the second floor while her mother and father slept in the master bedroom downstairs. Sammy’s big brother, Jackson, had been having difficulties sleeping, so he’d joined them downstairs in their bedroom.

The next morning, Larry climbed the stairs to fetch his daughter, but he quickly realized that something was wrong when he felt the heat. As soon as I got to the top of the stairs, it was very warm.

I mean, hot, Larry told WFAA. But tragically, it was too late for Sammy. I ran to her room, opened her door, and found her passed away, Larry explained the temperature on the two floors of the house had been controlled by different systems.

When the family went to bed that night, the thermostat for the second floor was set at 72 degrees Fahrenheit. However, a malfunction in the coming hours would change the family’s lives forever.

By the following morning, the system’s error had allowed temperatures to skyrocket, leaving fragile Sammy to sleep in a bedroom that heated it to well above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Likening the effect to a sauna on Carey Road, the temperature registered 99 degrees on our thermostat, which was as high as it could go, meaning it was over 100 degrees.

And despite attempts to resuscitate her, within less than an hour of Larry discovering her tiny body, Sammy was pronounced dead.

The Taron County medical examiner subsequently recorded the cause of death as hyperthermia from an elevated body temperature. The bereaved parents, Meanwhile, we’re left wondering why they never heard Sammy cry.

After doctors explained that Sammy had passed away in her sleep, the couple knew that their baby would not have been able to make a sound before her body failed further harrowing news came when doctors warned that due to his age, had Jackson been in his usual bedroom that night, he could have died too.

Young children cannot regulate their own body temperature and don’t sweat as much as adults, which makes them more susceptible to overheating, Dr. Todd Wolf, a pediatric emergency physician from Fort Worth, told a Star-Telegram.

Searching for an answer, Carrie replayed the events of the night before. She’d let Sammy say good night to her dad and then take her up to the bedroom. After cradling Sammy in her sleep sack, Carrie had placed her daughter into the crib for what would be the last time. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

This sack was just one of the many ways in which Carrie had endeavored to keep her baby safe. In addition to keeping stuffed animals and pillows out of the crib, Carrie had also ensured that her babies had breathing monitors up until the age of one.

As a self-confessed warrior, Carrie really thought that she’d eliminated as many risks as possible. Sadly, though, there was one risk that nobody had predicted. Upon preparing to become a mother, I read multiple books and stories on possible dangers that could harm babies and toddlers, Carrie wrote.

I wish I’d read once about this. One warning somewhere about heating systems could have ensured that Carrie had kept the breathing monitor or invested in a thermometer.

Then perhaps everything could have been different. Once they received the devastating news that Sammy’s death had been caused by a heating system malfunction, the Volmairs found a lawyer and began looking into legal action against the heater’s manufacturer. The family needed explanations.

Their baby had died a similar death to those left for too long in hot cars but had done so in the safety of her bedroom, and Carrie felt like she had to take action. Not long after the incident, Carrie began spending her evenings researching similar events online.

And that was when she decided to set up a Facebook page in memory of her daughter called Remembering Sammy. Joyce Vault Mayor. Over the past year, the family has posted memorable stories, photos, and videos of their Princess as they remember her.

Moreover, this Facebook page had an even more important purpose. Carrie’s aim is to spread Sammy’s story in the hope that this heartbreaking series of events never happens to anybody else.

The pinned message on Sammy’s Facebook page ends with a plea to share the post. We want others, especially those with two-story homes, to hear Sammy’s story so that children can be protected and other families are spared from the horrific grief we are forced to endure each day. With more than 210 shares, Carrie’s initial Facebook post has since gone viral. People have reached out to her family, expressing love and support as well as sharing their own stories. It has also become clear that Sammy’s page could potentially save lives, too.

Some of the nightmarish incidents that readers have shared with Carrie seem as distressing as her own story. On top of numerous closed shaves, Carrie has heard about children turning blue and having to be thrown in the bathtub as well as parents who have walked into bedrooms that are 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

One thing’s for sure, Carey’s experience was not unique devastatingly though nothing will bring Sammy back, and for this devastated family, the nightmare will go on. We miss her every second of the day, Carrie told WFAA. There’s a very large hole in our family without her here.

The door to Sammy’s bedroom is now always open. Its white wooden crib still stands with plush toys filling the room. I can’t stand to see the door closed, Carrie explained to the Star-Telegram. I don’t want to ever feel like we’ve forgotten about her.

Subsequently, they didn’t even make it out of the wedding ceremony as newlyweds.

The bizarre story soon surfaced on X/Twitter, with one person writing: “I went to a wedding where the groom spent his speech making fun of his wife like it was some kind of roast, as did her father. She should have done what this woman did.”

Another simply called the (short) series of events “unbelievable”.

It comes after model, author and podcast host Emily Ratajkowski reclaimed the stigma around divorce and rebranded it “chic”.

“So, it seems that a lot of young ladies are getting divorced before they turn 30,” EmRata said. “As someone who got married at 26, has been separated for a little over a year [at] 32, I have to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything better,” she added, referencing her split from Sebastian Bear-McClard.

She went on to describe being in your twenties as being “the trenches,” before adding: “There is nothing better than being in your 30s, still being hot, maybe having a little bit of your own money, figuring out what you want to do with your life [and] everything, and having tried that marriage fantasy and realising that it’s maybe not all it’s cracked up to be.”

They said it was a meth lab, but ‘they were cooking child in the bedroom’!

Authorities said that the responding officers were called out to a mobile home on reports that a meth lab was operating inside. But, unfortunately, when the officers arrived, they found something far worse cooking in the bedroom. Now, both parents are going away for a very long time.

Per reports, both parents, Kathlen and Lucas, had been holed up inside for days, with one room of the mobile house transformed into an oven — until it became too hot to ignore…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

The woman, who happened to be pregnant when cops were called to her home, had been up for 38 hours with her man on a meth-making and taking bender.

She mentioned that she heard a noise from the other room of the small home and thought, at one point, about checking on it, but her drugs were too important to take a few steps away from them. After the sounds stopped, she finally opened the door to the room and found her 2-year-old son, Braydon, ‘had been cooked to death from the space heater’ that she left on for him.

The parents thought that locking the child in the room with a space heater on high for almost two days was enough to keep him comfortable so they could do their drugs. The heater didn’t have a thermostat on it that would allow it to shut off when it got too hot, ultimately making an oven out of the room.

To make matters worse, officers not only found that the trailer house of horrors had been condemned and had f-ces and filth everywhere, but also that the child was severely malnourished after not being fed for days. Disturbingly, if the heat didn’t kill him, the starvation probably would have. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

According to FOX News, this isn’t the pregnant mom’s first run-in with the law. In fact, she hadn’t even fully resolved her child endangerment charge from when she was pulled over for driving under the influence with a kid in tow when she caused the death of her son.

She and her parents faced 20 years to life for abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death, topped off with an additional drug charge. Both parents were sentenced to 21 years in prison for their role in the death of their 2-year-old son, who was left in a hot room for 38 hours.

Dear readers, we are republishing this story amid recent reports that child abuse has surged in America during the pandemic.

Jasmine had always been a night owl. She used the quiet hours to work on her art. This particular evening, she’d been at her studio. She lost track of time as she worked on a new piece for an upcoming gallery show. It wasn’t unusual for her to be driving home late.
