A Candy Kills a Toddler in Moscow

A Candy Kills a Toddler in Moscow

Today worldwide media are notorious for extracting sympathy from people by reporting tearful news. Russian media do not lag behind, but we decided to accumulate several reports - not that you cry but that you take extra care of yourself and your family, especially kids.

      All these stories happened in the city of Moscow. In May 2012, a 6-year-old boy fell out from the balcony on the 4th floor. The glass turned out to be too fragile. Although suffering from many broken bones, the boy survived.

      A month later, in June 2012, a 2-year-old boy fell out from the window, also on the 4th floor. This time the toddler was reclining against the mosquito net that broke down under the boy's weight. Taken to hospital with a severe brain trauma and broken limbs, the boy died in spite of life-saving efforts.

      Last night a father came to the police department in the north-east of Moscow and reported his son's death. A 4-year-old boy fell asleep, still chewing on a glazed chocolate sweet. The sweet got stuck in his throat, and the child suffocated. 

      Arguably, most of these cases could be prevented with a bit more attention from parents. So we ask you to better look after your children.
