Police: Mom tied son to minivan roof to hold down wading pool

Amber Schmunk, 29, of Fredonia, Wis., was trying to get a plastic wading pool home Sept. 9, and it didn’t fit in the minivan, so she put it on the roof — along with her 9-year-old son to hold it in place.

Another driver reported the unusual sight to Saukville (Wis.) police and two patrol cars stopped Schmunk a few minutes later after she dropped the pool off at her sister’s house. Saukville is about 27 miles north of Milwaukee.
