Really heartbreaking, I would be devastated but cannot believe the family are suing Somerfield!! Well I can, and I know this sounds really harsh but surely some of the blame lies with the kids Mum? He was technically unattended when it happened. Before there is a plague of people calling me heartless I just don't think all the blame should lie with Somerfield, it's not like something dropped off a shelf onto him, if that were the case I would whole heartedly agree with screwing them for every penny!!
I know you cannot watch your kids every second but when in public places I have my 3 year old by my side, holding baby buggy, or holding my hand, and if I do give him freedom to be a bit away from me he does not start messing with stuff (I stop him if he does) because I don' t want him to get injured! (and he would because he is by far the clumsiest child I have ever met!)
