August 28 - From the "Grossly Negligent Parenting" file:
The family of a young boy is in shock and grieving after he was killed in a tragic accident. The boy, 4-year-old Christian Lee Urrutia, was crushed by a safe weighing nearly 1000 pounds. The safe had been sitting on a trailer with "Wheelers" at the time of the accident.
Christian's father spoke with News 4 WOAI's Jacqueline Ortiz and said his children were running around the trailer and jumping on it when the safe fell onto Christian's small body. His parents and grandparents managed to pull Christian out from under the safe and call 911. When paramedics arrived, little Christian was breathing, but died shortly after.
1. Why keep the safe on wheels?
2. Why keep the safe so close to the edge that it fell?
3. Why let kids jump and play in the area?
4. Why not try to minimize potentially deadly hazards be securing or removing the hazard?
The burden these parents carry for the rest of their lives will be far heavier than any safe could ever be.
