A ten-year-old East Texas girl, Greenlee Marie, was electrocuted causing her death while apparently trying to retrieve her kittens, who she loved dearly, from behind a dryer in the home, Fox Carolina reports.
It is not known how the tragedy happened. I probably shouldn’t speculate but if she was electrocuted it would be an unfortunate accident or the cable was worn or something like that. Perhaps the wiring was loose and she touched it as she pushed her hands under the device to try and grab her kittens. Pure speculation. Or there may have been poor wiring causing the device or an object to become ‘live’. The home is rented and her parents are saying the landlord is responsible for her death. If they are correct it hints at poor maintenance. It’s one of those tragic and avoidable events.
Her mother said:
“She loved her babies. And she would do anything for them,” Shelby Roos said of her daughter and her kittens. I know she is up there right now with all of her babies.”
A fund is planed in her name to which people can donate in aid of a local rescue for orphaned animals.
In the pictures the local authority employees are searching for the reason why she was electrocuted. This is so sad. Her life was ahead of her and she loved animals by the look of it.
