"It was only a short trip" said mum Pauline Thomson of Greenock, "but it almost had fatal consequences for us. We were taking my mum home and she was in the back of the car with six-month-old baby Leona on her knee. Since it was only a two-minute journey, we thought it would be alright."
"As our car stopped to turn right, another car hit us, and Leona went straight through the glass in the rear side window and landed on the pavement. A passer-by picked her up, he thought she was a doll, and left her on the bonnet of our car."
"Lucky isn't the word for it - it was a miracle she survived. Our son was in the car too and, if he hadn't been wearing his seatbelt, he would have gone through the windscreen."
"It doesn't matter how much a car seat costs, you can't replace a child - there's no price for that, and a properly-fitted car seat could save your child's life."
