how many times were you told as a child not to be too close to the TV?




story from paper

Child killed when television falls on her


OREM -- A 5-year-old Payson girl was killed when a large television fell on her while her parents were shopping,

Police Lt. Phil Murphy said the accident happened at Circuit City at 4:09 p.m. Wednesday.

"We"re still investigating why the TV fell over and exactly what the circumstances were, so at this point the store"s risk management people are still conducting an investigation and so are we," Murphy said.

The girl"s name was not released, Murphy said, because some family members had not been notified.

I think my parents had different reasoning when telling me that.

Tragic story nonetheless.

If it was caused by the parent's negligence then it would be over pretty quickly.

Not here in the states. They would probably win.

I don't know how a TV would fall over and kill a child because of the parents negligence unless it was the kid that tipped it over. Even if that's the case, they will still win... or CC with settle out of court.

Very sad, indeed. :(

Btw, a "big lawsuit" doesn't mean sh*t when your little girl is gone.

Thas a bunch of BS!!!!! You have no idea what kind of parents they were! They can be the happiest people on earth right now, there is some messed up people in this world.

The family is mormon and I doubt they will sue the pants off circuit city. The circuit city CEO guy flew to them and is personally taking responsibility and helping the family. It had a quick interview with the guy and he was very sincere and sad and shaken up.

It would be nice to check in with all my old pals here, but you're all so hard to find amidst the gazillions of unrecognizables.
