This was on the news last night. I was so sickened seeing this little girl treated like this. Apparently, the mother has come forward. I can't wait to hear her story. My guess would be the girl had an accident and the mom decided to (1) not wait til they got home to get her clean and (2) the carwash was there and wouldn't hurt. At least I'm hoping it was pure stupidity and not outright cruelty. Either way, the woman needs lessons in parenting at the very least. The poor little one was howling in pain and fear.
