Made the exact comment this morning. Why would a four year old be placed in danger. The parents should be charged.

Mixed emotions on this one... without knowing all the facts.

The article didn't indicate negligence on the parent's part. I have a very active 2 1/2 year old and a 1 year old. My oldest is rocking the terrible twos and is not interested in listening - despite discipline. I'd like to give the parents the benefit of the doubt that he is an active kid who slipped away in seconds. It happens every day, but rarely with such significant consequences.

I remember running off from my Mom at the mall when I was 3-4 when she turned her back for only a second. She dragged my older sister through the mall frantically looking for me. Even the best parents get distracted for a split second. Any parent who says they've never been distracted is lying.

CPT (Join to see) As a parent, I know you're right. But that kid had to WORK to get in there. He had plenty of time. At least, as I understand it.

Since he had to go through a couple fences, if I recall, I wonder if by the time he got over/through the first fence he was either too quick, or the parents didn't realize that he had disappeared THERE and we're looking other areas nearby. Regardless, it's a very tragic situation.
