Remembering the Tragic Day at the Mall

As I was ghost writing for someone several days ago about fire safety, it reminds me of the tragic event that happened in the Villagio Mall. It was so tragic that it cost the lives of 19 people and what made it more devastating is that 13 of them are children below 5 years old including the triplets. Below were our shots during one of our visits in the children’s theme park inside the mall.


Below is one of the attractions at the center of the mall where they replicate the famous Gondola in Venice and customers can ride the boat  at a minimal fee. Several steps from the right side of the left photo, where you can see a blue car, is where the fire started and trapped the children in a day care center inside the mall.
