1. If the kid was curled up on the seat and the driver was just looking for heads and didn't
go all the way down the aisle, he could have missed the kid and still have "checked."

This is the exact reason why the driver has to go down and do a seat by seat check. It's a really lucky thing that little guy is ok.
