Such an unfortunate circumstance, directly caused by social media:
(CNN) — A Colorado woman told authorities she was using Facebook in another room when her infant son drowned in a bathtub, according to an arrest affidavit.
Shannon Johnson, 34, was arrested January 11 on one count of child abuse by knowingly and recklessly causing a death, said Jennifer Finch, community relations director for the Weld County District Attorney’s Office.
For the record, this is not the first time a bathtub has played a role in maming an infant.
Ghostbusters references aside, folks need to disconnect from their social webs – if only for a moment – when they’re performing important tasks, such as driving a car, cooking or bathing an infant.
Oh, yea. And WALKING.
