Bad Parenting Leads To Tragic Death...

While I was browsing through Google I spotted something that was bizarre in it's own way. Apparently Mike Tyson's 4-year old daughter died in a tragic treadmill accident. But wait... it gets better. Two weeks after she passed away he decides to marry his long term girlfriend. Like WTF?? Your child dies and you don't mourn? you decided to throw a wedding. It's not my part to say how every family mourns for a person's loss but still that is immoral to me. The child died because she got tangled with a cord that belonged to a treadmill. What kind of parent does not tend to their child when they are near an exercise equipment. I mean "Come On," adults get hurt at the gym on the treadmill. I remember when I used to go to the gym, I jumped on the treadmill and was about to get hurt because I was exhausted so I nearly slipped. The reality is that accidents do happen, but when you have small children you always have to be careful. Always know where they are and be smart, don't have unsafe things in the house. If you DO have unsafe equipment then lock those doors. Children get hurt by any little thing and it is such a tragedy that this poor child passed away due to a treadmill. I hope that future parents be aware that rare situations like these CAN happen to normal living parents everywhere. If we don't take care of our kids or our future kids then who will?
