WEBSTER, Texas -- Police and family members said a 10-year-old boy who died by hanging himself from a bunk bed was apparently mimicking the execution of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. Sergio Pelico was found dead Sunday in his apartment bedroom, said Webster police Lt. Tom Claunch. Pelico's mother told police he had previously watched a Spanish television station's news report on Saddam's death."It appears to be accidental," Claunch said. "Our gut reaction is that he was experimenting." http://www.10news.com/news/10678372/detail.html# What is your opinion? Should his death be blamed on a video to destorted to comprehend? Or is it a case of child neglect?

i don't think it is the consequence of Saddam's hanging video. the actual hanging was not shown in that video, moreover the video was so very clear too. this is very difficult for that little boy to get the method out of that video. if u want to try that u have to made so many thing perfect, then only one can die. for such a little boy it seems very difficult
