Woman’s Snowboarding Trip Kills Son

by The Editors on February 18, 2007

A 24-year-old woman from Asaka, Saitama Japan faces charges in the death of her 2-year-old son in a fire that burned down her apartment. The woman left two-year-old Takeaki Fujiwara home alone for 17 hours while she went snowboarding.

During that period, a fire broke out in their apartment and burned down the room. The charred body of Takeaki was subsequently pulled out of the debris. . . . Investigators suspect that the fire started after Takeaki accidentally pulled over a kotatsu, a small table with an electric heater.
