A person who has lost his parents is called an orphan.

A woman who has lost her husband is called a widow.

A man who has lost his wife is called a widower.

There is no word for someone who has lost a child.

Just horrible.

I was shocked when I heard about this.

I can't imagine the pain Jussi and his family are going through, beeing in a foreign country so far from home and all. Losing your child is probably worse then death.

I hope Jussi and his wife have the strenght to go on with their life.

God love you Olli-Matias.

Absolutely terrible. I'll always remember the day Eric Clapton's son fell from a window in NYC. So sad.

this morning I was able to read some of the local paper and get some details but it is absolutely heartbreaking.

Jussi was with the team in a nearby hotel preparing for the game vs Riga which the team incidently lost, when he heard the news. his wife was home alone with the two kids. she left the two in the sitting room while she was working in the kitchen, when the younger screamed. The son fell through the 6th floor window.
and moskito netting. Mum saw the son lying on the courtyard floor. All help came too late. She had a breakdown.

sorry to bring the details. but I thought some might want to know.

This has to be one of the most god damn depressing things I heard in a while. Parents shouldn't have to bury thier children! And the other child seen it happen? OMG This poor man has his work cut out for him.

This seriously got me depressed. I need a drink, a stiff one.

Jussi was always a classy guy, real tragic thing here. Thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family in this dark time.

As a person, it makes you cringe.

As a parent, it stops your heart.

Prayers with Jussi and his family.

They don't, my old "stepdad" lost his son when he brought him to his work one day, he solved the guilt problem one year later with 400 prescription sleeping pills.

I gotta admit, this really chokes me up reading this.

I don't even want to think how/if I would be able to cope with something like this.

Horrible...what happened, someone took off with him? In some ways that could be even worse than having your child die...the anguish of not knowing where he is or what some sick ******* might be doing to him/her.
