    ^^^(just the quote, not the post) It's not at all funny..it's a tragedy!!! Not sure what will happen to the driver, but it won't be something he will get over either. Poor little guy, :rip

    Just to clear things up, I wasn't laughing at the kid's death so much as the irony. I mean, he had leukemia, a cleft palate, a jaw defect, curvature of the spine, deafness in one ear, an eye he could not move.... and on top of that, he got run over by a car. 10% laughter, 90% sad.

    I have nothing to say but that the irony is so bad that I'm laughing at the horrible irony.


    The Poor kid who has survived Cancer and many birth defects, he meets his end in a car accident. My Condolences to The Poor Little Boy and his Family. :rip

    because we all know the driver knew the kid had cancer for three years. and i think the guy that hit him feels like shit now. if not sure.. i hope he gets his ass kicked.

    nevermind the ass was speeding.

    I like how they post the speeders pic next to the victim, sorta the "If you see this guy by chance, kick his ass"

    I wrote a story like this once, the one who ascends all odds and fights till he is gone is struck down by this single blow. For in his spunk to survive he gave everything and had nothing left to spare.

    I foresee a healthy combo of "child overcomes impossible odds (insert ironic death her)" :(  It happens all the time, honestly

    It does bring up another point though: if you were the driver who ran over the kid, would you feel less guilty if you knew he was terminally ill?

    I think the guy should be treated as if he hit any other non-criminal person. He did not know the kid was that sick. People speed down streets and kill other people. It a mistake people never learn from other times its happen.

    Even a police officer have done "silent running" that killed a person in a PT Cruiser.

    Man that's sad, that kid could never catch a break. :[

    What is it with 12 year olds lately? I mean we just had that report of the 12 year old girl kicking the burglar in the nuts, what's next? They become our next president?

    “It is then that we must understand, God's sense of humor is very different from our own. He does not laugh at the simple ‘man walks into a bar’ joke. No, God needs complex irony and subtle farcical twists that seem macabre to you and me. All that we can hope for is that God got his good laugh and a tragedy such as this will never happen again.”

    - Father Maxi, 710


    One of my favorite South Park quotes ever and I honestly feel it sums up this article quite well that said this is pretty sad.

    It will happen again. Recovered from seriously illness child gets killed expectantly by careless adult.

    The thing is... will we notice it.
    This story doesn't feel too new.

    Meh, at least they're not as bad as the Toronto Sun. I wonder which genius designed this front page:
