My heart goes out to the entire family. To the father.... I feel for you. How very tragic.

To bootsontheroad.... could you spare us all with your thoughts? How pathetic to take pot shots at someone who clearly is hurting right now. I think the better question is.... what were YOU thinking?

I have a son. I have done a ton of work with a skid loader. What was I thinking, how dangerous it is to have a kid sitting on your lap while running one of those things. Accident my butt, this guy was clearly not thinking about the safety of his child.

I feel for the rest of the family but the person operating this thing should have all parental rights severed if he has any more children. Clearly he is incapable of thinking any thing through. Or are you in favor of putting the rest of those kids in danger?

You have no right to judge someone! Yes, he probably wasn't thinking when he took his son with him but I am SURE he never expected this to happen. He will pay for it the rest of his life having watched his son die so I suggest you just shut it and go on with your life.

Who's Dad didn't put them on his lap and drive around the block once and giving you the impression that you were driving? I suppose had a Semi hit us and killed me that people would be on here throwing stones. C'mon people. Let them grieve.

If you don't know all the facts you should keep your fat mouth shut. I personally know the father, and he was one of the greatest dad's you would ever meet.
