    Poor kid. That must be a terrifying way to die.

    Why don't things like that happen to people like George W. Bush?

    That's horrible. The poor thing. I wonder if it was because she couldn't read the warning signs? So few international tourists can speak/read the language of the countries they visit.

    Of course, common sense IS the global language. I wish it had kicked in for her and prevented this tragedy.
