To be fair to the parents, they were across the road and checked on them every 30 mins. I have a 3 year old girl and don't find it that disturbing, given the circumstances, that they should have left her like this.
This part of Portugal is considered very safe and everyone knows everyone. To pop across the road for some dinner with the kids sound asleep is not,
in my opinion, something they should be ripped apart for.
It is no different than say, sitting in your garden with friends and a BBQ while the kids are asleep upstairs. (obviously, if you have a small garden,
this analogy isn't good, but I have a big one so it fits a bit better.)
They were only 30-40 yds from their apartment. You could run that in less than 5 seconds.
I mean, for heavens sake, they've lost their child and all people want to do is point fingers! Priorities people!
