My beautiful son Joshua xx.

(Tasmania Australia)

Hi my son Joshua died on the 17/08/2011 it was a Wednesday morning .He woke at 6am nothing unusal he was sitting on the lounge with me while dad was having breakfast he got up and said im going to have a shower. About 10 minutes later after i got school lunches ready i knocked on the door and said hurry up it wasnt unusual for him to have a long shower then i thought he has been in there for a while, so i knocked again no answer so i went in. And there i saw him in the bottom of the shower bay which was an old one and quite deep and square, I screamed and then Tony (his dad) came running and so did his brother Jake i pushed Tony out of the way because he had a heart attack 5wks before and with all my might i pulled him out, Jake and i did CPR but didnt help he had already gone we called the Ambulance. The next minute we had 3 Ambulances ,Police, Detectives and the Coroner. It was the worst day of my life and still to this day we still dont know what happend. We are still waiting on the Coroners report. He had been to the Doctors numerous times about his ears and feeling dizzy but he just said it was a teenage thing because my Dad Aunt died of brain hemorrhages and i have Meneires as well i asked numerous times to have tests but DR Flecker didnt want to know about it and doesnt believe in Referrals now we have to wait and see. We believe the shower was dangerous and contributed to my babys death. Imiss him so much and love him heaps cant beleive this has happened to him my beautiful BUBBA CAKES. KAREN.

Sorry xx
by: Wendy

Dear Karen, I am so very sorry. My son Brodie died 23/7/2011. He was 8 years old. He woke that day and said he didn't feel well but wanted to attend school as there was a disco that afternoon. I was phoned to pick him up as he wasn't well. When we got home he watched a dvd for a while and then went to have a bath. He drowned in the bath and I have no idea what happened. The pain is unbelievable. I like you miss my boy every second of every day. Pleas accept my love. You are so in my thoughts xx

so sorry

I'm so sorry about the loss of your beloved son. No parent should ever have to endure such a catastrophic loss. I lost my 23 year old son to cancer 14 months ago. It's a long hard road. Just know that there are others who are walking this path with you and will help hold you up when you don't think you can take another step.
