A tragedy that the child is dead. Of course it is.
However, from the article:
"A neighbor says she overheard the boy’s mother telling family members that the boy was climbing on the headstone when it fell on him."
I personally feel the parents are largely at fault here for two reasons: First, the kid should never have been allowed to use people’s graves as a playground. That’s some serious disrespect there. And secondly, is it really that hard to anticipate that if your kid is climbing on and pulling at a huge slab of rock that was installed over a 100 years ago, it might fall over on him?
So anyway, just curious, would you have let your kid do this? Was it truly a freak accident that the parents could not have foreseen/prevented, or was it negligence on the parent’s part?
