How some children played at slaughtering
Two little boys saw their father butchering a pig and decided to reenact it. The older brother slit his younger brother’s throat. The mother, upstairs bathing their littlest brother, ran downstairs to see what was happening. When she saw what had been done, she was so mad she killed the oldest boy with the knife. She remembered her youngest babe in the bathtub, but it was too late: the baby was drowned. She was so distraught, she hung herself. When her husband came home, he was devastated. He died of a broken heart only days later.
