Why are you so eager to find out the details? Maybe it's none of your business. Maybe they have the child's best interests in mind by not releasing the information. What purpose does it serve to speculate? Why do you automatically assume it's cell phone related? Stop being so nosy, offer your condolences, and leave it at that. When and if they release the details, your morbid curiosity will be satisfied at that point in time. Until then, keep in mind that a child is involved and that it has nothing to do with you.

Did you read the first sentence Tragic wrote? I don't think Tragic was mean or offensive. You came off really angry and judgemental, maybe you should re-read the post with a cool head.

Two kids were orphaned because of this accident. They lost one parent recently and now the other. This truly is tragic. Our thoughts and prayers go out for these kids.

What a terrible tragedy. I hope the little girl recovers and both children have comforting memories of their loving parents.
