It is a great tragedy but one that was 100% avoidable had the parents been being, well, parents. Having lived in Bethel and traveled to many villages it seems quite a few people have a false sense of security which as we've seen can not only be tragic but fatal.

I think the parents should be prosecuted for neglect, in the end, they chose to have a baby and allow her to be unattended, though I'm sure mentally they will be paying for their ignorance and poor judgment the rest of their lives.

Unfortunately it usually takes a tragedy to evoke change- hopefully other parents will learn from the parents who were unable to protect their child.
