Two young siblings tragically died on Monday evening at the Joy city mall in Tianjin, eastern China after falling five stories. It is reported that the father was holding the children while looking over a 1.3 meter-high barrier outside a restaurant on the fourth floor when one child fell five stories to a basement floor. While attempting to grab the first child, the second slipped from his grasp and also fell over the barrier. The two children were killed instantly by the fall at 9pm, police said. Video footage of the aftermath taken by bystanders shows the parents crying hysterically while holding their children's bodies. Despite warning signs and being heavily highlighted in the media, these types of accidents continue to happen. It's a case of negligence, but should they be charged with negligence?
