When some netizens questioned how she could have forgotten her child, the mother explained that she had six sleeping children with her

Some of the children had gone down to pray, while some of them were sitting outside the car.

"When I saw my eldest child get into the car, I thought they had brought all their siblings along," she tweeted.

"I just continued the journey. Suddenly, the Shell staff called to say we left one child behind. We were already entering Maran at that point."

Some netizens also offered "helpful" suggestions for the parents to use in the near future

"Every time the car moves, my father will definitely do a roll call for every one of his children. Maybe you can practise this as well," one netizen said.
