PSNI say carefully fitted car seat saved baby's life in crash

Police have told of how a baby escaped injury from a crash due to a carefully fitted car seat.

PSNI Craigavon posted the picture of a wrecked car and said incredibly a baby in the backseat escaped injury and didn't have to go to hospital.

The incident happened on Tuesday afternoon.

Officers said: "This is why we spend so much time and money on car seats. Believe it or not the baby in the back of this car didn't even need to go to hospital.

"The parents may be slightly disappointed at the loss of a nice car, but the main thing is their little munchkin is in one piece.

"Thankfully, no-one was badly hurt in this one yesterday afternoon. If these parents hadn't been so careful with picking and fitting their car seat, it could have been a much different story."
