My heart goes out to the father and family. Such a tragic event. I can't imagine what he must be feeling right now. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

This is such a shame. The father must be going out of his mind. So many accidents in the winter. Pray for the family in their loss and Nathan may he R.I.P.
