In the story, a poor boy died by being bit by a mad dog, which could not have happened had the poor boy stayed indoors. It had recently rained upon the whole village. The villagers know to stay indoors until the sun warms and dries the area enough to go outside without catching a cold. Why was the poor boy outdoors where he could catch a cold or be bit by a rabid dog, and almost no one else was outside?
