I mean it could not be more obvious that that was going to happen, but you can’t be too harsh on the boy because he’s only 3 after all. He probably thought he was going to fall into a magic room filled with toys and gold and good lighting. Instead he suffered a busted face and a good 10 or so seconds of unforgettable terror in nightmarish pitch blackness. Get well soon little man.
P.S. Don’t go calling it a manhole cover in California – you’ll get yourself in trouble.
