    CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE LEFT ALONE. THEY SHOULD EITHER BE TAUGHT PREVENTIVE MEASURES OR LOOKED AFTER WITH GREAT CARE.

    Owner of the machine must be brought to law since an underage has been employed.

    So sad to hear. These accidents can be avoided if safety precautions as per manufacturer are ALWAYS adhered to instead of shortcuts. You can get away twenty times but just one slip is enough for tragedy.
