My four year old son became trapped in the rear middle seat belt. It would not release and the more I tried to release it the tighter the belt became. Myself and several other adults tried having him change positions. I finally was abe to release the belt, however he was twisted in the belt and it locked and wouldn't give and became progressively tighter. I finally had to cut the seatbelt off because he was in pain, crying and having difficulty breathing. He has seat belt marks across his abdomen and trace blood in his urine maybe from this incident according to the pediatrician.
