As part of what is allegedly the most terrible pandemic of all time, mother’s love is obviously also subject to tight limits: A mother from Texas panic when her 13-year-old son tested positive for the corona virus – and then put him in the trunk of her car .
The incident happened Media reports according to January 3rd. The 41-year-old Sarah Beam, a teacher from Houston, wanted to maneuver her offspring to the nearest Covid test center to have the infection confirmed there – but was afraid of being infected, whereupon the boy unceremoniously landed in the trunk.
The test center showed little understanding for this “precautionary measure” and told the mother that the boy would only be tested if he was allowed to move to the back seat of the car. The 41-year-old initially refused, whereupon the police were alerted.
Since the incident became known, Beam has been on leave from her teaching job in the Cypress-Fairbanks School District. The police are investigating her for endangering the welfare of the child.
