It Took Her 3 Weeks To Write This Post. This Is Why The Right Car Seat Is So Important
February 7, 2017
Andrea Murray spent a long time researching the right car seat to buy for her child. Her family thought she was crazy for doing months of research, and her husband couldn't believe the amount she decided to spend on the car seat she finally chose. But today, she couldn't be more proud of her decision.
In a viral Facebook post, Murray shared a devastating photo from her car accident. But due to her extensive research, her daughter is alive today.

It's taken me 3 weeks to write this post as emotions from this day still run high. 3 weeks ago today in Midwest Illinois we suffered an ice storm. It was early on this morning that on my way to work my 2 year old daughter and I hit a patch of ice on the road, sending my Jeep into a ditch where we then rolled 1 and 1/2 times landing on our side. I have NO DOUBT in my mind that your car seat saved my daughter's life that morning.
I commute an hour each way for work, I remember my family thought I was CRAZY after the birth of my daughter because I searched for MONTHS for the perfect car seat. I watched car seat crash test videos over and over again until I found the safest seat for my baby, the Diono Rainier. My husband thought I was nuts to spend so much on a car seat. And I could not be more thankful that I did.
No parent should ever have to turn and look in the backseat to see if their child is still alive, but if you ever do I hope you see what I saw. My child perfectly snug in her car seat, she did not move an inch, her car seat did not move an inch, everything around her was broken, but she was perfect. She did not have a single scratch on her. Even with the roof and windows broken, the Rainier kept her safe.
You cannot put a price on your child's life. We will not only be Diono customers for life, but will advocate for the brand that saved our daughter."
