Hi there! I'm currently trying to type up my problem question answer about an omissions that leads to the victims death, and I am unsure how to incorporate factual causation and legal causation into the answer...

How do you do that, seeing as it was an omission as opposed to an act that brought about the Victims death?

For example D is V's father, D gets distracted by a painting on a wall and fails to notice V jump into a deep pool V cannot swim in, V drowns and dies.

How would you establish factual and legal cause here?

I'd be grateful to anyone who could help!

Oh look, it's a poorly-disguised bot. Every post it's made is the same.

At least it isn't relying on the goodwill of unpaid volunteers to respond to the hundreds of unanswered threads.

Acts and omissions both work the same way when it comes to causation.
