So happy she's making a comeback!
I had the great opportunity to see her when she performed in London in a tiny O2 academy venue several years ago.
I knew she married an Italian but didn't realise she's become a mother!

Whether the law requires it or not, it's always safety first and seatbelts really must be worn if available!
Not sure the victims' families/friends will be happy to see this cctv footage so widely available... really feel for them

Really sad, young lives lost...
One of the victims is my cousin's ex-girlfriend... so even though I don't know her personally, my cousin was affected by this greatly (they only split up recently as well).

RIP little girl, so so sad.
And I really feel for her family as well, especially the mother who backed out the car.
Hope this serves as a lesson to all other parents out there to please be careful and watch your children!

How sad, RIP little girl.
Nationality has got absolutely nothing to do with this, don't understand why JT had to point it out.
Never leave your child alone, 4 year old is still way too young...

Poor boy, only 5 years old, and you're supposed to trust your parents.
Usually a boy would be very close to his mother I'll guess, since fathers would be out working.
And yet the boy was murdered by someone he trusted most - his mother.
RIP little boy!

So sad and tragic... does Japan need more baby hatches?
If a mother's going to end her own life, at least have the decency to let the innocent baby live on!

Sooo sorry for the mother, she thought it's safe leaving her son with grandma but grandma has totally betrayed that trust and killed the son!! So sad....... a lot of people need help in Japan as these news are getting more common by the days!

Is there such a thing as a "confinement nanny" in Japan? If so it might help as you get a helper for the first month after giving birth and a new mother might not be so stressed.
I don't understand why these kinds of news happen a lot in Japan... are the parents there really under so much more pressure than new parents from other countries? So glad the newborn is OK.

Why not give that money directly to the people or local communities. Far less bureaucracy.
