Sorry for linking and I know it's a dm link but I'm in tears reading this. I don't mean to upset anyone but thought I'd post incase anyone else has seen the story already and is also upset etc, I haven't even read the full story but just the headline is horrific enough. My heart goes out to that poor poor child and his parents.
I read this and felt sick too. AT least I hope it makes parents more cautious about sitting kids on these high railings rather than carry them - we have a gym in our local school with a spectators viewing balcony probably that height over the gym and every week I see parents letting their little ones sit on it and it makes me feel alarmed because they can so easily slip. It's a mad thing to do, but lots of people do it!
