I am very sorry for your loss, BUT I am very bothered that the grandfather was NOT watching this precious child close enough and let him wander off. No one does that. He was just a baby and could not have known the dangers of this river. You said you have 4 well this was only 1 child not hard to watch. I have a 2 yr old grandson son and YES it is possible to watch them every sec and it is a must. You NEVER let a 2 child of any age wander off let alone a 2 yr old. I m sorry but the fault DOES lie closely to the grandfather for NOT watching him like he should have. If this was an everyday thing then the grandfather should have know the dangers and watched him closer!!! Now this little life is gone and my heartbreaks for him. This is to close to home and my grandson will be watch even closer than he is now. IF thats possible.
