So sad.

I do question the article that puts accidental in quotes as if to suggest it wasn't even though the authorities say there was no sign of foul play.

I agree. Maybe the writer knows or suspects something that isn't public knowledge?
There was no mention of why a septic tank was open or uncovered.
And why was a 3 year old apparently unsupervised?
The investigation is probably not over.

Well it may have been an accident but why was the tank not properly covered or fenced off ESPECALLY since it was under a playground?

Because nothing is as it seems anymore, especially at Fox. If you can't get the body get the blood!
Why was the septic open without proper barricades? Campground may be closing in the next year or so.

I can't believe a tragic accident happened to a young child and some are arguing about the source of the story! Despite the source, a life was lost and that is tragic. Take your opinions and biases someplace else and just show some respect and sympathy for the family of the child. STOP POLITICIZING EVERYTHING!....disgraceful!
