7-Year-Old Dies After Falling Into A Septic Tank

This is tragic.  According to the Eastern Arizona Courier, a 7-year-old boy died last Friday in Safford, Arizona after falling into a septic tank at a mobile home park.  He was apparently playing near the open tank and fell in.  The large board that had been covering the tank had been removed for some reason.  A sheriff’s deputy and two firefighters heroically entered the tank and were able to retrieved the boy, but it was too late.

I really hate to see something like this happen when it could have been so easily prevented.  As the father of a young boy myself, I can’t imagine what this boys parents must be going through right now.  My heart goes out to them.  Even though it’s probably the last thing on their mind right now, I hope that they eventually explore the possibility of legal action.
