“To be fore warned is to be fore harmed” is not an English adage to be taken with levity; failure to adhere strictly to warnings can be so dangerous and pose a life threatening damage.
The case of a toddler recently murdered by a couple when wrestling moves was performed on the child is like the outcome of removing the “don’t” from “don’t do it”.
The WWE have always been giving clear warning to anyone watching its shows not to be too carried away to the point of practicing or making some moves they are watching as doing so might be dangerous.
The ugly incident of this unfortunate couple is enough to make anyone understand that professional wrestling move is not to be toyed with especially when one is at home. The innocent soul of Addie Cook was put to waste by a careless mother who allowed herself to be used alongside her lover to kill the child by performing wrestling moves on him.
Not long ago, the news broke out and the internet went agog when 2 year old Addie Cook passed away after her parents performed wrestling moves on her, inflicting multiple injuries on her.
The culprit involved in this case was learnt to be a 24 year old Richard Gamache Jr., being the boyfriend of the child’s mother was said to have abused and caused the child to be in a state of trauma leading to her untimely death.
Both of the love birds were said to have been apprehended by men of the security agencies, Gamache and Cook had made various professional wrestling moves on Addie reported to be a form of Body Slam and the popular Batista move on the poor child hitting her head on the concrete wall beside her bed.
Even though Gamache pleaded his innocence at first, seeing that no excuse is tenable for such a harsh treatment on a minor, he later mentioned to authorities that Addie may have suffered head trauma after her head hit the concrete.
The WWE in its official stance on the matter expresses shock and sent a heartfelt condolences saying that the miscreants must be brought to justice.
“We are deeply saddened by this tragic death and hope that the guilty parties are brought to justice,” the company stated. “There is no excuse or justification for the brutal and ultimately fatal beating of a 2-year-old child by a grown man. This is a clear case of criminal intent and a lack of parental supervision.”
