It’s heartbreaking to know that a mother completely neglected her 4-year-old son, and was just too glued to her smartphone. One can only wonder, what was so interesting on the screen that taking care of the child seemed less important.
A video clip from a CCTV showed that the kid had tragically died from drowning in a swimming pool in China, last week.
What is even more amazing, not only the mother was oblivious to the whole ordeal, even the people that were close by also didn’t notice a boy flapping his arms vigorously in the pool. Where is the bloody safeguard anyways?!!
The boy had a 3-minute struggle for his life and eventually ended up at the bottom of the 1.1-metre pool.
After awhile, as seen in the video, the mother puts away her mobile phone and starts searching for her boy. May we remind you that she went in the complete opposite direction of where her child was.
Only then, she called the staffs at the site to help find her boy by which they only manage to do so after an hour.
According to a source, the public swimming pool has been shut down for the time being and that the mother regrets bringing her child to pool that day.
Please…please…please…put down that god dammit phone and enjoy the physical presence around you rather than facing that screen! This could have been totally avoided.
May the poor kid’s soul rest in peace!
Take a look at the clip below!
