Morally seems a bit egregious (not knowlingly exposing a child to deadly harm). From other answers, it seems to be a grey area as far as legality, culpability.

I would never want to be in such a position, for multiple reasons. Being proactive about it is clearly the best idea overall.

I will indeed be procuring a lock box to ensure that such a situation never occurs outside a hypothetical scenario.
