A “terrible accident,” has occurred at a wedding in Illinois after a 5-year-old boy was crushed to death while playing with other children at the reception.

But the death and loss of a child is the ultimate tragedy.

Along with grief, there are many issues that make parental bereavement particularly difficult to deal with.

The understandable feeling that this loss never should have happened.

Even if you feel it shouldn’t.

And the tragedy happened during what is meant to be one of the happiest moments in life…

With the whole experience being classed as one of the most joyous occasions.

After a 5-year-old boy got crushed during the reception.

Luca Berlingerio was with his family at The Drake Hotel just outside of Chicago on Sept. 4, when the tragedy took place.

With the frantic call informing them a child had sustained a head injury at the wedding.

Who was performing CPR on Luca, despite him being unresponsive.

The table had been set up behind a couch, where children at the wedding were sat playing.

He held onto the edge of the table, which was unsteady, to try to keep himself stable, the Oak Brook Police reported.

And Luca sustained a serious head injury.

Where he was pronounced dead.

“Our team is heartbroken about this terrible accident, we wish to share our condolences with the family and friends affected. To respect their privacy, we aren’t able to share the specifics of the incident.”

The fundraiser has received over $20,000 in donations since Sept. 10.

“No words can explain what it feels to lose [sic] a child. We know times are hard but anything will help.”

With those who attended adhering to social distancing guidelines.

After a tribute wall was set up online for people to comment on.
