STOMPer Ivan was appalled to see this child left unattended with an iPad outside a grocery store while his parents shopped inside for about 15 minutes.
"I happened to witness a young couple abandoning their son outside Shop N Save at Admiralty MRT station to shop for groceries at around 11pm on Sunday (July 15).
"The child was left alone outside for roughly 15 minutes, which attracted the attention of many passers-by.
"I think the parents are very selfish and irresponsible to leave their son alone and vulnerable.
"Moreover, there is an iPad with the child. Leaving a valuable belonging with a helpless child is a sure way of inviting misfortune of robbery to themselves.
"Thankfully, the child was safe and sound when his parents returned."
