    Our prayers fo out to this family. They are good people and would not hurt any of their children. God be with them as they try to move ahead with their lives. Bless the brother envolved, as he will will have much to overcome for years to come. Accidents do happen every day, but only the bad gets told. This family was treated differently during there time of crisis. That is so unfair. People should be ashamed to be judging what they really do not know.

    At least there are a few people with some sense in these comments. I was afraid there would be a lot of neg. comments. My prayer goes out to the family and to the 9 year old for sure. My he not blame himself for just trying to protect his you sibling. May God be with all of them...

    How old was the baby? 6 months old is what I read in another article ("Infant Dies After Days In Hospital" ) on WKYT/WYMT website:

    Grieve for this family, stop judging what you don't know and realize that accidents happen to everyone, regardless of how hard you try and prevent them. Remember, there is a living victim in this tragedy in the 9 year old. Be compassionate, be concerned, but don't be judgemental.

    I am very good friends with the mother of the infant and I know that this was a pure accident. Our babies are only 6 days apart and this has just killed me to know that he is gone. It is true that a bee got after the baby and that is why this happened. I know that she is a great mother and was always with the baby. There were 6 kids in the household and they loved kids very much. He was there pride and joy! Now that he is gone they are gonna have a rough time getting passed all of this. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I dont know how to handle anything like this myself but I do know that nothing can replace your child and that this hurt will last a while so if anyone has any advice please let me know so i can pass it to them. May God be with them in this hard time!!

    I was holding babies and taking care of them long before I was nine years old. Accidents is accidents. This family is hurt enough without people putting mean remarks on here. Do you think the little girl would hurt a baby on purpose. Grow up. This baby probably meant the world to this whole family. Pray for them not be mean to them.
