Her mother was there and couldn't swim. All articles were deceptively optimistic from the beginning.

Easy to blame parents when something awful happens to a child. In this case It just happened. Comments like yours are cruel and abusive and imply that you are impervious to accidents or trajedy. Be alittle compassionate before you judge.

This is what I wrote to the "Disgusted" response. It is fitting for you as well. "Easy to blame parents when something awful happens to a child. In this case It just happened. Comments like yours are cruel and abusive and imply that you are impervious to accidents or trajedy. Be alittle compassionate before you judge." There is nothing absolutely nothing worse then losing a child, the guilt and sorrow is impossible to comprehend, unless of course you have gone thru something similar. And if you had, then you would have enough empathy and enough respect before judging her parents. I hope you never suffer such a trauma. No matter how rude your comments are, absolutely noone should have to go through this.
