Sad news from Thailand. A seven day old boy fell into a canal and although the parents and others rushed to get him out, the little boy had drowned by the time he was brought to the surface. What we see here in this gallery is the agony of a father who has just lost his flesh and blood, a new life that he and his wife had brought into the world. We can assume that the child was intended since we don’t see it lying in the trash as is common in South East Asia.
An adult can make choices that can be judged by others, but a little one is exempt from such judgement. We can automatically blame the parents, considering any child death to be 100% the fault of the parent(s), but accidents do happen. I don’t know exactly what happened but the child simply got free of his parents, whether through neglect on their part or simple accident, and slid under the water. It was the last time they ever saw him alive.
