Dad stabs 4-year-old son to death in attack on mom; media labels this a "quarrel" (Capetown, South Africa)

Reporters, please get a clue. This was not a "quarrel" or a "domestic fight" that took place "between" the parents. This was an ASSAULT that UNNAMED DAD directed against the mother. But then Daddy stabbed to death his 4-year-old son in an alleged accident after the mother ducked. Well, I suppose if Daddy hadn't had his knife out threatening the mother, the "accident" wouldn't have happened, right?

A four-year-old boy was stabbed to death during a quarrel between his parents in Nelson Mandela Park in Mthatha, Eastern Cape police said on Sunday.

Eastern Cape police spokesman Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said the incident happened on Saturday night, when the child's parents were fighting.

"The father tried to stab the mother but she ducked," said Fatyela.

"The knife hit the boy... who was on his mother's back."

The boy died on the scene.

Fatyela said the father fled the scene but police were following leads which they hoped would lead to his arrest.

The mother was not injured. - Sapa
