It was a normal Monday morning – Monday the 15th of May, the day after Mother’s Day – when Kyrin Falcetti dropped her four-year-old son Cole off to the baby sitter’s day care in Virginia, USA.
Only an hour later, her world would be torn apart.
She received a phone call that something had happened to Cole. She and Cole’s father Josh arrived at the daycare and it was all horribly, terribly wrong.
“There were cop cars, the ambulances, everyone’s out front, so we knew something bad had happened,” Josh told media.

No official version of events has been released.
But it’s understood Cole somehow managed to his little hands onto a loaded gun, and shot himself.
“There’s no reason a child should be within reach of any type of weapon whatsoever at any point in time.”
A GoFundMe page was set up to help the family arrange the “best (funeral) service a four-year-old can get”.
