Nothing is worse than a child dying through their parents stupidity..
And trying to sleep through the night afterwards is hard. For a lonnng time..

I have a friend of a friend who killed their own child


It was night and he was going out. The kid ran out of the house and no one knew this. The guy was backing up and felt a thud

Very sad. A life jacket and a little more attention, and this kid wouldn't be fighting for her life.

They had two guys doing an "on site" interview on the local ABC channel last night. They did an interview at what looked like the sandpits; and they explained how they did CPR for 30 minutes. They were in front of a boat with a big blue splash graphic painted across the bow and windscreen, but I don't know who they were. That's where I got the news.
