It is tragic that two toddlers lost their lives in a fire in the Bronx after being left alone while their mom went to do laundry. It is heartbreaking for a mother to lose her children in this devastating manner and my heart goes out to her. This tragedy however emphasizes how important it is to make sure that children are never left unsupervised. No matter how safe it might seem things can happen and tragedy can strike at any minute.
