Well I'm certainly not sticking up for the people who stood there and did nothing. They should be ashamed of themselves.
But by people being sue happy everytime something happens is what lead to this kind of thing. People just looking for a buck instead of doing whats right. And this is the case on both sides, the people who stood there, and the parents for sueing.
It's a bit late for the people who stood there to do different, but the parents themselves it is not too late.
It's a horrible situation, and I'm not defending the people. But 2 wrongs don't make a right.

My girlfriends a nurse and they have been told to keep their mouths shut as have doctors for one simple reason : they get sued if anything goes wrong.
Blame the culture where everything is someboys fault who can be sued somehow. There is no such thing as an accident anymore nor gratefulness for anybody trying to help and do their best.

And this hasn't got out to the media. If the parents are thinkking about suing it would be no time they would've gone to the media.
I have a close friend who lives in Australia and there is no story at all about this which could be big. This is the kind of story that the press would like to air.
And in this age of Internet the story would be all over the place.
All you have is just a story with ZERO evidence.
