Maybe it was the parents fault, but I know what it’s like to be on that end. It sucks and is not on purpose. Either way, this is terribly sad.

When the child was in there surely tranquilizing would be more appropriate? The child would have been in a very dangerous situation, but I feel it could have been coped with better.
