Man Forgets About 2-Year-Old While Buying 51-Inch TV

A consumer apparently forgot about a two-year-old child in his car while he was buying a discounted 51-inch TV during Black Friday.

According to police, 34-year-old Anthony Perry was excited about a 51-inch TV at his local K-Mart. So excited, in fact, that his girlfriend's 2-year-old was left in the car at 1.30 AM. He then somehow made it home, leaving the parked car containing the boy in the parking lot.

Mall plaza security reportedly noticed the boy asleep inside the car and notified the police, who then freed the child. Perry apparently told the police that he took the little boy with him into K-Mart but the child then managed to lose himself in the crowd. The authorities, however, said Perry never reported the boy missing.

Consequently, he may now be charged with reckless endangerment to a child. Another tale of Black Friday woe involves a man pulling a gun on a consumer who cut the line at a Sears in San Antonio, Texas.

    There's no mention of the type of TV involved, except for size. Was it a nice Samsung 3D LED TV? If so, what's a child and car measured against that?

    If it's some cheapo $599 job, he should be arrested and harshly beaten. It's inexcusable. Not only has the child been abandoned, for the foreseeable future he'll be viewing an inferior TV. For these newer generations, this can be very traumatic and damaging.

    Not quite. You make it sound like the gun owner's over-reaction to someone merely cutting in but he pulled the gun when the cutting-in guy punched him amidst a general affray caused by the barging in.

    Yet another American guy dating single mother, and yet another single mother leaving child to random boyfriend.

    Why do people buy huge TVs? Just buy a good set of HD goggles and true surround sound headphones and you're set!

    Zak is leaving a key piece of info out from the source.

    "The child's mother was working at the time, and her boyfriend was supposed to be babysitting."

    Kinda big if you ask me as Zak makes it seem like the guy didn't even have to take the kid with him.
