Such a tragedy. When I hear stories like this, it just amazes me that accidents with children don't happen even more frequently. Life is precious and every day with them they dodge at least a bullet or two. Tragic accidents can happen to any family at any moment. It doesn't make it any less heart breaking for this poor family :(
