Watching the news it said that the dad was playing with the kids who were going up and down this big slide in the park.

The father waited for the kid to climb up and come sliding down but he didn't appear at the top of the slide for a long time. Soon the father realized the kid wasn't behind the slide either.

That's when the dad and the other son went looking for but couldn't find the kid.

You'd never think this kind of thing would happen to a kid who'd gone to the park with his father and brother. Poor kid. Poor family..
