Little Lakers Fan Loses His Life: 2-Year Old Plunges 50 Feet To His Death From Luxury Suite After Crawling Out Of Parents Sight
This is so sad. A toddler suffered fatal injuries last night after a tragic tumble from a luxury suite at the Staples Center shortly after the Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors 117-89.
The parents of a 2-year-old who died after plunging 50 feet from a Staples Center luxury suite had lost sight of their son and were searching for him when they learned he had fallen, said sources familiar with the investigation.
The boy, Lucas Anthony Tang, had been crawling around the suite during the Lakers’ game against the Golden State Warriors, sources said. At some point, his parents noticed he was missing and began to look for him.
They did not know then that their son, who would have turned 3 in January, had fallen. Witnesses at the game told The Times that the boy was moving his arms, legs and head before paramedics took him out on a stretcher.
A spokesman for AEG, the company that manages Staples Center, said he had no comment at this time.
The death is being investigated by the LAPD’s abused-child unit, a standard practice that officials said does not necessarily mean a crime has been committed.
We’re still trying to understand how this happened. Those suites are blocked in by a low wall of glass that should have been high enough to prevent a toddler from climbing over. Something doesn’t seem right about this.
Better preventative measures should have been in place, it shouldn’t take something like this happening for them to build an effective barrier.
What The Hell??? Car Thief Returns To The Scene Of The Crime To Scream On Mother For Leaving Baby In The Unattended Vehicle
SMH… You’d think by now parents would learn to stop leaving their kids unattended in cars.
Unfortunately that’s not the case of one Texas mother who almost lost her child and her car last week when a thief made away with the vehicle, only to return to the scene of the crime to berate his victim for leaving her child in the backseat!
Galveston police said a 22-year-old woman and her boyfriend parked along Seawall Boulevard near 9th Street early Tuesday morning to go fishing.
They took their fishing gear down to the beach and then decided it was too cold for the toddler, investigators said.
The mother took the child back to the car, started the engine and heater and then went back to the beach to help her boyfriend get the fishing gear, police said.
Investigators said a homeless man hopped in the car and took off, with the child inside.
A few minutes later, the car thief took the car back and yelled at the couple for leaving the child in the car, police said.
Detectives said the thief ran away on foot.
The district attorney decided not to file charges against the woman and her boyfriend for leaving the child in the car.
If this had a different outcome this wouldn’t be funny, but since the woman got her kid — and her car– back safely we’ve gotta say this is one hilarious crime scenario.
Moms don’t leave the babies alone in the car!!!

A Florida family will have to bury their newborn son after an attack by the family dog resulted in his death.
The Department of Children and Families told CBS Affiliate WAWS they are investigating the child’s death. It happened at a home in Arlington, about 90 miles north of St. Petersburg.
The little boy’s father tells WAWS a dog attacked and killed his son. The newborn died at a hospital. Authorities have not released the baby’s name.
Spokesman John Harrell for the state’s Department of Children and Families says the state agency and police are investigating whether the baby was being supervised and whether the dog had previously shown aggressive behavior.
Michael Shannon is a neighbor and says he can’t imagine what they’re going through. “It’s sad, really sad.”
Shannon is a father, too, and also owns a pitbull. He worries this attack will continue to give the breed a bad name. “I have a pitbull. He’s the sweetest dog in the world. I have a two-year-old. He plays with it, but it depends on who raises the dog,” said Shannon.
A spokesperson with DCF tells WAWS parents should be careful when they have their kids around any type of dog.
The child’s father told the station animal control euthanized the dog Monday morning.
Don’t be mislead by the photo we used, the dog that’s pictured is actually not the pet involved in the incident. Please make sure, no matter how much you trust your pet, they’re never left unattended around children.
Poor baby. R.I.P.
