Another Tragedy that Could Have Been Avoided

It is rather sad that men have to lose their lives while performing official duties.

It is even more tragic when a tragedy like this occurs even when the men are not doing anything hazardous like the pursuit of smugglers or armed terrorists.

To the families of those who died we must share their grief but we should also ensure that this kind of accident does not recur or those men would have died in vain.

An official inquiry should be conducted with the findings made public so that everyone can learn from past mistakes and proper training given so that government officials do not endanger themselves or members of the public.
