    Grief as children die in farm dam

    Grief as children die in farm dam

    very sad story, their farm is just 10 minutes south of us, and although I didn't know the parents/children personally, they are certainly a well respected, family around the district. My thoughts are with them. It's the 4th time this year tradegy has struck in our area

    But the quadbike was at the side, not ploughed into the water.

    Sounds like many a kid over here has done, seen a quarry full of water, thought it not much deeper or dangerous than a swimming pool, found out much for the worse that its not the case.

    Sad news anyway

    The bike had nothing to do with them drowning (from what i've been told anyway). They had driven the bike down to the dam (with their mother, she was with them when they went down to the dam in the first place i'm led to beleive) and weren't on the bike when she last saw them. It seems most likely that one of them fell into the dam (they were found fully clothed) and the other jumped into save them.

    Reminds me of what happened here last year when two kids fell through a rainwater tank cover and were held down and drowned by the debris from it. This sort of thing just sucks because I bet the 99.9% of the time, those kids would have been perfectly safe.

    I don't think it was suicide.

    Yeah, I remember that. Their grandparents were looking after them at the time.

    Rule one surely, never let kids out of sight around water. Far too dangerous, too many children have died because of it. (mebbie its me being over paranoid, i do have a bit of a water phobia. Never trust it, especially not uncontrolled stuff like the sea, rivers, dams......)
