The guy has pleaded to it, hopefully to save the family of the lad any more grief.

Regardless of the term of imprisonment that he will get, he will see and hear that appalling accident for the rest of his life.

RIP the little lad because the suffering for many will never end.

If you act irresponsible then these are the consequences, I have no sympathy for the defendants whatsoever.
