      • How horrible.
        Either more and more kids are being killed these days or it's getting reported more now.
        This is a wake up call to all parents to either be more vigilant or teach safety to their kids.
        Not saying it's parents' fault but kids have to be aware of dangers.

        • Criticism against the parents' actions are unjust and unfair. A truly tragic and chilling accident, indeed, but keeping a constant eye on curious, energetic children is not always possible every minute, every second of the day.
          Simply an accident. No-one should be blamed but the co-incidences of fate.
