Boy Dies After Friends Bury Him Head First in Sandbox

Monday, March 10, 2008
http://www.foxnews.com/images/service_ap_36.gifEVERETT, Wash A 10-year-old Everett boy has died in a Seattle hospital after an accident in a sandbox.
A spokeswoman for Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center confirms that Codey Porter died Monday.
In a statement, the boy's relatives say they appreciate "all the support and prayers" they have received and have decided to honor his memory by donating his organs.
Codey's family said earlier that the TV cartoon "Narutu" gave him and his friends the idea of burying him head first in a sandbox. They thought he was joking Saturday when he struggled.
Sheriff's deputies questioned the five children who were playing with Codey and say it was a tragic accident.

Why are they calling it an 'accident'? He wasn't trying to hurt his friend, but it wasn't an accident either.

They were able to find a home for all of his organs except for his brain which nobody seemed to want.

What kind of sandboxes are they building thesedays. Any sandboxes I've seen haven't been but maybe a foot deep. You maybe could cover someone up but not "bury" them.

"Cody was playing with Quantrille's three sons and several other children on Saturday in the back yard of a home belonging to a family friend. There is a sandbox in the back yard"

This is the sort of tragedy that happens when sandbox construction is unregulated! This tragedy could have been avoided if the government was doing its job and had put forth the minimal effort required to fund the U.S. Corp of Sandgineers. Bob Dole hopes that someone has the courage to ask our Presidential candidates about their position on this sort of thing.

I blame Al Qaeda for bringing over all this excess sand. This should be part of the war on terror.

Actually, we should just tax the shit out of it. Let's pass the tax burden on to people who are into such harmful sand. Do you know how much money sand related illnesses cost this country every year? It's astronomical. These sanders need to start picking up the bill on such an environmentally unfriendly substance.
