(Newser) – Shortly after leaving a pub yesterday afternoon, David Cameron realized he'd left something behind: his daughter. The British prime minister thought Nancy, 8, was with wife Samantha; Samantha thought the girl was in the car her husband was traveling in. In fact, she was in the bathroom, the Sun reports. After the family realized what had happened, the PM hurried back to pick his daughter up; she was separated from her parents for about 15 minutes. The staff "didn’t know what to do" once they'd found her, said a local. "It’s not like you can look up David Cameron in the phone book and then ring to say, 'You’ve left your daughter behind.'"

I bet neither parent forgot their cell phones. I have been on family outings as far back as I can remember. I never got left and I never left anyone. This is becoming more common because kids are just minor accessories and parents are self absorbed.

Meh, it happens, especially when traveling in multiple cars and with family that you trust is looking out for each other. Ever go on a driving vacation with extended family and switch cars during the trip? It's not like they forgot her on purpose or for days. Less than 15 minutes and they realized it pretty quick.
