    Two lovely little lads drowned in fish tank.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 14 Mar 2016, 12:27 pm

    Normally I would not put any story like this in the board but on this occasion I am so badly effected by the deaths of these two wee lads that I am very angry about it.

    OK, there is still information to come out of the police enquiry, but I cannot see any time that this accident, ( if it was an accident ), should happen to both of these little twins.

    I mean, was there no protection on the top of the fish tank so that people could not fall in, and if not....WHY NOT ?

    This event has caused the Health and Safety Executive to liaise with the police over the deaths of these twin brothers.

    More to come on this I think.

    Any comments please.

    As I read it, it looks as if the big fish tank was owned by the landlord of that rented property, and even although this person might be caught by a Health and Safety Executive examination, I still think that the parents of those little guys have to bear most of the blame for the deaths of their children.

    A simple wooden frame with chicken wire tacked onto it could have saved the lives of those twins.

    I am actually quite angry about this. Mad

    Yeah mate, you and me both. Mad

    These Health and Safety Executive enquiries usually take a long time so it may be a while before we see what comes out of it.

    They will never see the joy of playing and learning with the other children in their school and when I think about that I get very sad indeed.

    Whenever I see my kids at the school running about and laughing and causing mayhem I am going to think about those two lovely wee lads. Sad

    Why were the kids left unattended long enough for this to happen? If someone had been in the room with them it wouldn't have occurred.

    Yeah, it does sound simple when you look at it like that, but, while I am not trying to let the parents or the landlord off with anything, I do know that wee children, especially boys have to watched all of the time to keep them safe.

    I might be wrong, but I think that tank of Koy carp were out of doors in that tank with only one side facing indoors.

    If the kids were playing out of doors unsupervised they could very easily fall into that big glass tank.

    More to come I hope, as we could talk all day and speculate about what happened.
