    To both of these moms and their families my deepest condolences.
  • Young children tend to drown very quickly and quietly. They slip into the water and just go under. It's a misconception that there's a lot of splashing and calling for help. Also, young children who are used to wearing safety vests when supervised don't understand that it's different when they're not wearing one. They expect to just get into the water and float. I recommend parents get their babies into swimming lessons so that if they ever do fall into a pool they know how to turn themselves over and float on their backs. This skill has saved many lives.

    I almost lost mine and I was looking right at him, went down a baby water slide face first, inches of water, seems like it only takes a second.....mine is 17 now...I lift him up everyday, for all those who weren’t as lucky, I hope he can make this world a better place with his second chance. My baby boy. ❤️❤️

    my father was a police officer, and he told me a story about a 2 year old boy that drowned in a puddle...a puddle!!! that's all it takes. You don't have to have a pool in your back yard for it to happen
  • For people that does not have kids. The kids can get away from you very fast with out you even knowing they ran. I am so sorry you moms lost your babies. My heart goes out to you.

    Our 6yr old granddaughter drowned on 7/19 and weren't there. She went canoeing with an adult cousin and his girlfriend. She made it through the canoeing but it was when she went back to the dock to pick up her shoes that she fell in the deep dark water and drowned. The girlfriend did not watch her or help her retrieve the shoes. No one knew that she feel in the water. It took scuba divers over 2 hours to find her. We are heartbroken. She would have celebrated her 7th birthday today.

    I cant imagine the loss of these two women and I don’t want to judge. Kids are so quick and it only takes a second. When your children are that young you have to know where they are every single second. There were supposedly 12 adults in the house so how did this little boy get away from everyone. It doesn’t make sense. You have to watch your children closely especially when you have a pool or if you go somewhere where there is a pool. At 19 months, Emmy shouldn’t have been left for a second.

    Alarms,safety gates and one hundred per cent attention around any water.... there is no such thing as relaxing!!!

    I used to always bring child locks for the exterior doors when we went to vacation homes. I would never rest calmly if I didn't have that.
  • @Mjl449
    Put Guardian locks on every door that leads outside!!
  • This is so incredibly heartbreaking.. prayers for both families. Keep pushing forward, because what you all are doing is absolutely amazing! 👏👏
  • I loss my 3 year old daughter on June 10th to accidental drowning. This is heart wrenching!
  • This is heartbreaking! People are very aware about water safety. We hear about drownings all the time. I believe parents think that they watch their children “enough” around water so it couldn’t possibly happen to them. But it only takes a second or two.

    We almost lost our son on June 3rd 2019, just a month and a half ago! In a hotel pool 2ft away right by me as I dried off his puddle jumper my son was drowning! My husband was less then 10ft away putting away pool toys in a beach bag and he happen to look up and saw our son under the water, jumped in and pulled him out!
  • @xxotiffanyy
    This is just a horrible feeling for a mom or anyone. Blessing to the both of them🙏🏼
  • @danjuan325
    With Nicole, I don't understand how her son got from the couch in front of her, downstairs and into the pool in seconds. WHen she tells the story, sounds like she gave him the brownie and he sat down and then she went to leave the room and looked out the balcony. how did he move that quickly with no one noticing? I'm not blaming her, just curious.

    I was at a pool party at age 6 and I almost drowned. There were people around but no one noticed except 1 kid jumped in and saved me. Drowning is so scary and I feel so bad for these kids. I wish my parents taught me how to swim young or just what to do in case of an accident. I will defiantly teach my kids when I have them and if I'm near a pool, I'll make sure to watch other people's kids to make sure this does not happen.
