Re: Importance Of A 5pt Harness....( Get the tissues!)

Someone, please correct me if I'm wrong---I saw this thing a few weeks ago and cried through the whole thing.

I think the little boy who died was in a booster seat. The seatbelt did fail BUT because he was in a booster seat he had no protection when he was thrown from the car. What I got out of it (assuming this is the same video I saw a few weeks ago--i can't make myself watch it again) is that with a traditional car seat and a five point harness, if something horrible happened (like the seat belts failing) and the child and car seat were thrown from the car, at least the child is in a five point harness and is in a car seat and therefore has some protection.
