Texas/UNI: A mother in the US was arrested after she reportedly locked her Covid positive son in a car boot to protect herself from the virus while going to a testing site, media reports said.
A witness called the police after hearing someone from the vehicle's trunk in Harris County in Texas, according to click2Houston.com.
The mother had to open the boot to show her 13-year-old son lying inside the trunk. Sarah Beam, a teacher, has been charged with putting a child’s life in danger.
She reportedly said she locked her son in the boot as she did not want to get infected with the virus.
