If she had just used duct tape instead of the clothes hanger, it would all have been okay...

... or at least might have provided fodder for an eventual MacGyver remake:

An Alabama woman has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child after police say she let her daughter ride in a cardboard box on top of their van. Albertville Police spokesman Sgt. Jamie Smith said the 37-year-old woman was arrested Sunday after police received a call about a minivan on a state highway with a child riding on top.

Smith said the woman told police the box was too big to go inside the van, and that her daughter was inside the box to hold it down.

Smith said the mother told officers it was safe because she had the box secured to the van with a clothes hanger.

I'm thinking we have a definite contender for this year's Darwin Awards.
