As for your note of caution to parents, there is no blame to speak of since such events can hardly be anticipated. In fact, it’s when we stop to consider the fragility of little ones that we begin to recognize Hashem’s constant watchfulness on His miraculous creations.
Let us continue to pray to Him to heal the sick and keep their families strong, to keep us safe and not to test our own faith. Kol Hakavod to these parents for theirs!
