Boy, 4, died alone in Hackney flat two weeks after his mother’s death

This has to be one of the most raw and painful news stories that I have read in a long time.  How can this happen?

The Guardian newspaper runs the story: ”Coroner calls for changes in how schools treat cases of absent children following tragic death of Chadrack Mulo. A four-year-old boy, who was unable to call for help or feed himself, starved to death two weeks after his mother collapsed and died suddenly in the flat they shared, a coroner has said. Chadrack Mulo was found clinging to his mother’s body about two days after his own death.”
