Recommended Posts

What a tragedy. This is so unbelievably sad.

"Tears in Heaven' by Clapton comes to mind. My condolences to the family.

Devastated I am. So saddening.

Note to parents - if you havent done so, safety proof your balcony. My lil one managed to get out on ours one day and there is enough gaps between the railings for you know what.

Don't know why I didnt realise it before, but immediately went and purchased web screening.

RIP lil guy.

I met this guy on a visa run a few months back and we got on really well he seemed like a genuinely decent guy who happened to be raising his kid by himself.

As ive a new born we had a good chat about kids and he seemed content to be where he was and loved talking about his lad.

An absolute tragedy and heartbreaking to see those pictures where he is continuing to try and resuscitate his little lad.

I have a three year old. I cried watching the Video on the link. I don't know how the father will ever cope. I am so sorry for the whole family. RIP little one.

IMO would be more appropriate don't show the picture in the post #1.

Thanks for the attention.

May the young boy R.I.P.

So sad.

It only takes a moment of inattention with toddlers for tragedy, and life is always a mares nest of distractions.

It has happened for all the history of mankind. But it never loses it's shock and sadness no matter the times,

something like this happens. Just one more instance of the human condition, but always a very personal one.

RIP lil Mike.

My condolences to the grieving family.

I looked at the link about about his boys nanny a couple of years ago and its definitely him.

Im truly gutted for the man, and hope one day he can be grateful to have known his boy for just a few years, though nobody knows how to live your life after such a tragedy.

RIP Little lad.

This is indeed horrific news. Yes, balconies do need to be child-proofed but don't forget the poor design of the balconies to begin with. BTW, View Talay 2-A or 2-B?

Update -- I determined it was Building B from a Thai language news source.

An absolute tragedy and nothing can be done to bring the poor little Mike back nor settle his family. Yet another tragic loss of life and a YET ANOTHER wakeup call for <deleted> lazy thai authorities to start doing their job checking poorly designed and illegal balcony rails / ballustrading in this country. Most are not correct height and many have horizontal slats which should be illegal (because cheaper than vertical ones.. less material used in the former) without legal spacing. Youngsters see it as a ladder to climb up or or through if spacing too great. If you go back to the source of the problem nickel and dime developers who place no value on someone's life. A senseless waste of poor little Mike's life and it will not be the last. a question for authorities.. are the View Talay 2 balcony rails legal? How many are not? I stayed in Furama hotel on Jomtien beach and the balcony rails are 90cm high? Scary? Many others are this or less. Surely not legal height!
