    It's not so terrible.
    The story sates they were "8- and 9-year-olds".
    Kids at that age generally are still learning how to read story books...Nevr mind be able to understand the words 'pepper Spry' or what ever might have been printed on the canister.

    This is an easy mistake to make for a child
    Bigger more important question is where dd this product come from, to wind up in childrens hands.?

    I dunno, by 8 or 9 they know darn well not to reach up and touch the stove plate/burner because it's hot. There's no reason an 8 or 9 year old can't be taught not to spray, molest, or otherwise use on themselves as a guinea pig, random items that they find laying about in the street.
    I did some pretty stupid things as a child, but really?

    Anecdotal: I grew up in/around Brooklyn, Curtis Bay, and Brooklyn Park, Baltimore MD during my formative years. Most of the places we lived had alleyways between the rows of homes. All of said alleyways were always full of used drug needles every morning no matter how many times a street sweeper went through each week. Most of us kids played and or walked to school via same alleys. None of us kids ever thought it was a bright idea to pick up these used needles and attempt to play doctor on ourselves.

    It's a simple concept that can and should be taught to all minors(and most adults for that matter)...
    If you find something and can't positively identify it, or it is NOT yours, do not touch it and most importantly DO NOT USE IT ON YOUR SELF!

    Experience is a most unforgiving teacher, doubt they will make a similar mistake again.

    I remember being 8 and 9 and I never picked up a can of anything and sprayed it on me,but then again I had parents around 24/7 to teach me after school
