The back window was left down when we parked. My son, 6 years old, went to put it up. Somehow he stuck his head in through the opening and accidentally continued to put up the electric window. The window caught him in the mouth, with his head on one side of the window and his chin on the other. He was stuck. I turned off the key. I then turned the key back on and pushed the button to lower the window. I'm not sure if he was pushing the wrong button, but it went up more. We then managed to lower the window. He was bleeding on the sides of his mouth. Nothing stopped the window from going up even with his head in there. We were lucky nothing more serious happened. If he had been smaller child or if his neck had been in there, this might have had a tragic ending.
