very sad - too many overwhelming problems maybe and no way out
very sad on the children who are totally innocent but the family suicide seems to be happening more frequently.

sad to say some of it seems to have been planned which is a bit unbearable to think about

Upsetting to say the least,to think people need to go to these lengths to solve their problems.

Agreed.

Why?

You could only speculate on the reasons.
I doubt many of you (if any) have been to such dark places before, and i hope never will, but when life has constantly beaten the crap out of you and you realise that it's full of self-centred money grabbing capitalists who are screwing every one over whilst lining their own pockets, why would you want to leave your children behind to face more of it?
Try reading the Ragged Trousered Filanthrapists by Robert Tressell. You'll see that nothing has changed in over 100 years.

Don't judge without knowing the facts.

According to at least one news report , the child may have died from an illness, and the parents committed suicide because they were unable to come to terms with their child's death.

You're right of course. If that is the case, it is truly sad. I can't think of anything worse than the death of your child.

Whatever the facts or surroundings etc it still is a very sad thing indeed. Loss of any life is to be mourned not minced up through speculation and rhumour mongering.


There must have been very tragic reasons or circumstances surrounding the event and I for one hope never to be in such a dark place for any reason.

As noted above here's the latest news and for some reason I can't quite fathom, I think it's one of the saddest things I've read.

This family must have gone through so much hardship. This is very sad...

We were near Beachy Head once on our holidays, so I know the place. It is a beautiful place...

Grieving couple 'jumped off Beachy Head carrying their dead son'

Five-year-old's death from meningitis apparently prompted double suicide two days later



It is a heartbreaking story. The parents must have been overcome with pain and grief, maybe persecuting themselves over fault and blame? The boy had been paralysed from the neck down for two years as a result of a car accident. Trying to imagine what that must be like for an adult is bad enough...

OMG, that has made me cry, I have always said if anything happened to all of my children, without a doubt, I would go to, I couldn't imagine trying to live without them.
