Toddler Hangs Himself To Death On Playground Equipment

Tragically in Georgia, a three-year-old boy accidently hung himself on playground equipment when a piece of loop shaped twine became caught around his neck. At the time of the accident, the child was at a daycare under the watch of Janna Thompson, the owner of the Ms. Janna's Home Child Care. At the time of the accident, Thompson had gone inside for a quick moment, and turned around and saw the child outside. Although Thompson was considered an excellent care giver by those around her, according to the Alpharetta Police Departments public information officer George Gordon, "could this later be ruled a homicide simply by negligent homicide? Yes." "That has not occurred, but is that a possibility? Yes." The experienced attorney's at Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth have settled two playground cases in the past year, and if you or a loved one has been affected by a similar accident, they would like to hear from you.
