Please Do Not Forget About Your Kid(s)...

On and off, we have came across news about parents leaving their kid in locked car or at home, while rushing to run errands, but mostly nothing serious happened to the helpless young ones. This latest incident is really heart wrenching though...  [bigcry]  [bigcry]  May the boy rest in peace.  :a-rip:

 

5-year-old boy falls to his death after he was locked inside 8th floor Woodlands office

 

SINGAPORE - A five-year-old who was accidentally locked inside his parents' eighth floor Woodlands Close office was found dead at the foot of the building on Saturday (Jan 5).

 
Soo Jia He is believed to have attempted to escape through a window after he had been left alone for around 10 minutes, said his parents.
 
Soo's mother, who gave her name only as Ms Hu, told Shin Min: "Our home is only a five-minute drive from the office. I couldn't believe that when we rushed back to the office, we would see my son's body lying on the ground floor."
 
Ms Hu added that she noticed that the office window was opened when she returned to the scene.
 
She believed that her son could have fallen from the window in a panic, having witnessed their car driving away, a friend of the family told The Straits Times at the boy's wake on Sunday.
 
The police said that they were alerted to a fall from height case at 11 Woodlands Close at about 9pm. The boy was found lying motionless at the foot of the building and was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene. The police are investigating the unnatural death.
 
Chinese-language newspaper Shin Min Daily News reported that the boy's parents had taken him and his brother to their office that day, and he had fallen asleep while they did some work.
 
The couple run an education centre, though there were no lessons held on Saturday.
 
When it was time to leave, the boy's father switched off the lights in the office and they drove home with his older brother.
 
It was only when the couple arrived at the carpark of their home did they realise that they had left their son behind.
 
When ST visited the building on Sunday afternoon, candles and joss sticks had been placed near the accident site - following a ritual the parents had commissioned for their son earlier that day.
 
The boy was the youngest of the couple's four children and he was doted on dearly by everyone, said the boy's father, who wanted to be known only as Mr Soo.
 
They have a daughter and two other sons, the oldest of whom is 18. The other two are in primary school and secondary school respectively.
 
"It is a tragic accident that nobody could have foresaw", Mr Soo told ST at the boy's wake on Sunday night. He said both he and his wife had not slept since the accident the day before.
 
He said: "We don't know for sure how it happened, but all that does not matter now, the end result is still the same.
 
"Just like that, our son is gone. How are we going to be okay again?"

And please, for the seek of the deceased and his parent, don't start questioning how could such things have happened, or condemning the parent, as they are already filled with guilt...  [:(]  

 

Let just help to remind ourselves and people around us to be more careful and mindful when dealing with young children, and think twice about leaving them alone, even just for a short while...  [shakehead]

Singapore helpful drivers

#4

Posted by Philipkee on 06 January 2019 - 11:23:56 PM

Did not see a thread on this so I start one.  We have threads on reckless drivers, people not giving way to ambulances and all that.  One thing I notice is that it tend to be negative.

 

So why not start a thread with videos on instances where we see drivers being helpful?

 

My video attachment is too large so I only add screenshots.  Basically, what happened was that I saw a motorcyclist drop his bike or something and a helpful driver ran out of his car to help the motorcyclist.  

 

Will be nice if we can see more videos on helpful drivers rather than just reckless drive [angel] rs.  [:p]
