"Because we've had a lot of rainfall over the last couple of days, the sand becomes quite compact and obviously it becomes very dense as well.

"I believe the tunnel was a huge tunnel they were able to walk through, and it became unsteady and unfortunately collapsed around the young boy."
full story on link.... what is it with kids who like to "play" on the dangerous side and do  things they really shouldnt do... kids all over im guessing... who hasnt climbed really tall trees... roofs ..climbed up fencing and into dericlict buildings withn entry signs on??????  all of us at one time or another im sure....... my own boys let slip once that they have walked over to the island on the ice at the minehole..... i then grounded them for nearly 3 months.... the potential to die was great there..so t hey learnt their lesson adn I STUCK TO IT TOO
