FAA says 6yr old pulled lever during landing, causes belly landing

The FAA says it looks as if a child pulled the landing gear lever during touchdown of a 55 Baron T-42 Cochise, causing a belly landing. The plane was severly damaged, estimated around $150k. No one was injured.

Exactly why was a 6 year old allowed to sit in the dummy seat?

Not sure about the specifics....but when driving I always instruct my 7yr old not to touch the gearshift....guess that warning wasn't given in this instance...
