My daughter is 11. I can't imagine.
I know of fathers with mental illness who have been unstable in the past who still get unsupervised visitations.
I think the system is failing and people don't take mental illness that is severe, seriously enough. Or maybe just at all severe or not.
Why assume because he was in public he was not going to hurt the child?
Really sad and tragically unnecessary loss of a child.
With unstable histories you can never be too careful IMO.
Better over protective with a live child.

I was driving when I heard it on the radio news and had to fight back tears. I think having a DS a similar age just makes it hit home a little bit more.
Poor daring little man And his mother, I can't even fathom how she must be feeling. Just heartbreaking.

What an amazing woman.
It's no wonder so many (mostly) women stay in unsafe situations, because often I'm sure they feel their children are safer with them as a buffer between a violent partner and the child.
my heart goes out to Rosie and Luke. May he rest in peace.

This is painfully upsetting. I can't begin to imagine the horror and grief this boy's mum is experiencing.
What an absolute nightmare. That poor, poor little boy

I not long ago read the book Fathers Day written by the mother of the three boys who were killed by their father driving that car in the dam on Father's Day.
It haunted me and always will, it was the cruelest of acts.

RIP poor Luke. I don't have the right words to say to his mum.
It is a sad sad world when one must feel that this is the only option left for them to take, to harm their own child.

So very sad. It's happening too much :-(
RIP Luke and so many sympathy vibes to his mum

I heard about this story. How absolutely tragic for the entire family. The mother sounds like a truly brave courageous woman.
One thing I don't understand is how it happened in front of witnesses and no one could stop him? I know he must've been in a complete state (understatement) but was there no one or a group of people who could've stopped it?
