He fell into the river off a slippery path

I have always been paranoid about this kind of place - DH mocks me, he used to be the same in the Lakes when the kids were smaller, rushing off up steep hills with a 2-yr-old on his shoulders . I can remember other instances of people falling into fast-flowing water from similar sort of paths.

Poor little boy (and poor mum )

Oh how awful.
I stress about this too when walking by water and in The Lakes etc. Ditto cliff edges.
Gosh, that's just so sad

Not to hijack this poor sad story but they also said on the news today that some old boy accidently drove his car up a pavement, London I think it was, and mowed down a mother with a two month old baby in a pushchair. The mother survived but the baby died.
