I know the energy requirements of young children are enormous, but I don't think he would have been in danger of starving to death after two days.
Is it possible to starve to death in that short a period of time? I understand small children don't have the energy reserves of adults, but surely
two days would not be enough to do permanent damage?
This is like when the bus driver has a heart attack, just bad luck.
The kid is lucky there were no pets around. I've heard some horror stories of poodles and chows who devoured children, dead owners, living geriatric
owners and cripple people, seemingly on a whim, even in a couple of cases where alternative food sources were available.
Good for the kid to have survived, I hope he manages to stay out of prison and contribute to society. That's a much more pressing challenge than
living two days without food.
