    Dad sacrifices himself to save daughter :(

    Not sure if there is anything to say, but I thought it'd be worth posting:

    The story has been a bit romanticized. Most likely he was trying to pick her up and jump out of the way and things just did'nt go as planned.

    So what? Obviously if he had had time for himself, he'd have gotten out of the way too. What makes it special is that his first action was to make sure his daughter was safe.

    I agreed with Johnny when I first read the story last week. But as the man is dead, I like the idea of romanticizing his actions.

    That's great, but he still died and saved his daughter. Slow down sometimes Mr. Immanuel Kant.

    It's probably romanticised, but parents put their child's safety before theirs all the time so I don't see how that means anything.

    Because it isn't something that you should over think? Even it was romanticized, he did something that's commendable.

    Well, not really, maybe that kid will grow up to be a monster. All we know is that one unknown quantity was saved and one person who was demonstrably good died.

    Commendable parents would have been raising the kids in a better neighborhood,
    See my 1st post.

    Who knows, perhaps that man was a monster himself ? It's not unusual for villains to sacrifice their lives for their beloved as well, although it's a bit less likely, I admit.

    If you need a rational reason for his deed, he did it to ensure that his genes are spread and because his hormones forced him to help everything with a schema of childlike characteristics :tongue:

    Selfish gene theory? I just finished reading Dawkins.

    Well, that's assuming it really is his kid so I guess it's the selfish but trusting gene.

    Wow,

    you guys are amazing when concocting conspiracy like theories. Some one does something that any loving parent would do and yet you have to create a fictional front to turn a good deed into a selfish act.

    fantastic job.. two thumbs up.

    Yes I'm sure the drama must be quite excruciating for you.

    Don't drink without knowing where you are going to go and how you are going to get there.

    I disagree. People sometimes fall on bad times and have no choice.

    I can tell you, I would do the same for my daughter if I were in the same situation and I am far from living in an affluent neighborhood.

    So, where you live defines your ability to be a good, caring parent?
