    I don't believe that's going to do **** to help, but obviously some people (perhaps the majority?) think prayers can help in these situations or they wouldn't ask for them when things like this happen.

    I don't know the entirety of what she posted, but according to the article:



    That was the first tweet after the accident.

    Well what else could she do? The paramedics are already there, so she's doing the only thing she can think of that may actually help her child, call for people to pray for his/her safety.

    I see nothing at all wrong with that. I don't agree that these prayers were going to do anything, but to attack this woman for doing what she obviously thought might help her child is sick in it's own way.


    Now, if she had been tweeting about her shoes or something, the outrage would make sense. But outrage over tweeting for prayers for her child?!?!?!?

    Come on.
    my first thought would NOT be....."i've got to get on-line"......why wasn't she holding her child instead of playing on the computer? this is nuts, frankly. and i believe her son called 999, because she was busy. so, paramedics HAVE NOT arrived, and she's on her pc? HORRIBLE.


    Ross sent her first tweet at 10.22pm British time on Monday just a minute before the 999 call was made.

So, not quite a passive audience.
    I'm very familiar with the concept, thanks. I think it appeals to the narcissists.

    I called her behavior "nutso." I still stand by that assessment. As a mother, I consider her priorities out of whack. Is that demonizing her?

    I'm sure you've taken as much time checking the accuracy of the mail online article as you've taken working up your furious rage.

    That article is totally incorrect on teh timing of events. The tweet about the fog in the area was at 5:22 EST, while the 911 call occurred at 5:38.

    Her first tweet about the situation was over 30 minutes AFTER the paramedics arrived and took the kid to the hospital.

    I've found 10 sources confirming this, all of them more reputable than a British tabloid.

    Why do you say that? All the reports I've seen seem to be saying that her friends and family describe her as an extremely caring and devoted mother.

    Have you met her?

    I know the type. I prefer to look down my nose at her from a distance.

    How do you know her "type" if you've never met her?
