  • these are very sad situations to hear of and it would be tough to report on as well


  • How long is CPR practical for before the brain is damaged due to the lack of oxygen?


  • The little Queensland girl was badly scalded in the bath over a week before her cardiac arrest. So she suffered with serious burns for over a week, the parents were known to child protective services, why weren’t they monitored more closely or the child removed from danger?
    The second issue was a murder suicide committed by the mum, not a domestic violence issue involving an ex


  • Very sad for their wider families.


  • Very sad incidents. They are becoming far too frequent.


  • What a sad incidents !
    I hope and pray it becomes clear what happened in these cases which both sounds suspicious indeed.
