I'm right, you know …

Sad

From the BBC:

The parents of a five-year-old boy who had died from natural causes jumped to their deaths from Beachy Head with his body in a rucksack, it is believed.

Rescuers, who are not treating the deaths as suspicious, found a second rucksack nearby full of toys.

I’m not sure what is the saddest aspect of this story. That fact that having a toddler myself makes it that little bit more poignant personally? Or the detail about the second rucksack full of toys? That the couple’s family were unable to offer support – or were unaware that so much more was needed?

Or even that when I first saw the headline on the RSS feed yesterday, I didn’t read on … suicides at Beachy Head not being a rare event.

RIP all three of you, whoever you were.
