All good parents would go to extreme lengths to ensure their children are out of harm’s way. But sometimes, as it happens to anyone having to juggle multiple tasks at a time, parents can get distracted. Unfortunately, in that split second when parents look away, then is when tragedy can strike.
The mom and dad in the video below were with their son at the grocery store trying to get through the shopping list as fast as possible. Mom was in the dairy section looking at the variety of cheeses, while two-year-old Ayyan sat in the shopping cart next to the fruit section.
Without asking for permission from his parents, the boy grabbed two whole grapes and stuck them in his mouth while both his parents were looking away. Just seconds later, mom heard a choking sound coming from the direction where she had left Ayyan.
The woman dropped everything and ran to check up on her toddler, but unfortunately it was already too late. Despite her best efforts and the efforts of medical emergency personnel to save the little boy’s life, Ayyan passed away.
Nothing can bring Ayyan back, but his parents hope that by sharing his story, they can prevent this tragedy from occurring to other families.
