This is a terribly written article about the untimely death of two people suffering from epilepsy. Why does the article claim the parents were ignorant of sudden death in epilepsy? Has she qualified that they did not know this could occur? Why call families ignorant in the face of tragic circumstances. Further, there is no in depth explanation of this condition so the author has not done much to raise awareness. And lastly, drinking is highlighted. Drinking refers to what... water, alcohol, juice? Next time, don't wast the space in printing if you're going to call families ignorant and then not educate the populace on your subject matter. These are two people who lost their lives to a condition that is severely misunderstood.
