          It’s a good thing God put those people there shortly before pushing that kid into the water.

    Dear CNS
    I think that it is inappropriate to allow the “Dislike” button to be activate during great news like this (unless someone posted something negative). Who in their right mind would activate a dislike on this. Sick f@#*g people.

    I cannot deactivate the like-dislike buttons for individual articles. I can only disallow the comment section.

      People may mean they are sad when they click the Dislike button. You shouldn’t get so worried trying to imagine why people might feel a particular way or judge them.

      Perhaps they dislike that the boy was in trouble in the first place? Or that his parents were perhaps neglecting him? Just a thought.

      It is often just “trolls” who dislike positive messages, or condolences after someone has passed away. They are looking to shock or anger others by doing this, so just try to ignore them. When you react, you are “feeding the trolls”. It is sad that there are people like this in our community, but they exist all over the world.

        Or they have a different point of view and insights which we could all learn from. Different is good. If we all agreed all the time, we would still be figuring out how to build a wheel.

          So you think it’s ok to have a “different point of view” from someone who is simply offering condolences to families of victims of car accidents? I don’t disagree with your premise, but on certain occasions there are trolls at play, pure and simple.

      “To be activate”? Thumbs down for you.

    Yes I heard that some people on the beach and the police did hero work to keep that child alive until an ambulance come to the beach.

    I am so thankful to hear that the child is going to be ok.
