That’s horrific. Same thing happened to Bill Johnson’s one year old son years ago

Can't imagine what this is like and the added burden of guilt over what they might have done differently must be heavy.

Yes, very very sad and not something a parent will ever get over. Someone I know lost their toddler, drowned in a pond on a farm and unfortunately it is all too common. Golfer, Jack Nicklaus lost his 17 month old grandson in a hot tub drowning, Bill Johnson as mentioned above and now Bode Miller. From what I read, approaching 1000 toddlers a year die this way in the USA alone.

I don't know any parent who hasn't briefly lost a toddler at some point, it is almost impossible to keep your eyes on them all the time Crying or Very sad

+1. Tragic as this is, no matter how baby safe you try to make somehwhere, the child will always find a way. There's only so many eyes in the back of your head you can have.

Losing a child for a few seconds in the vicinity of a pool (even a tiny paddling pool) is more likely to end in tragedy than it is in most other environments. Some years ago I ran a department responsible for recruiting and managing thousands of people working overseas, almost all in hot countries. Mostly they were fine - but very sadly a small child drowning in a pool was one of the more common tragedies. A pool - especially when there are lots of people sitting round having a party - is a hugely hazardous environment for small kids. As already said, the burden of guilt when something like this happens must be near-insupportable.

@pam w, indeed. I was on holiday and lying round the pool when I saw a baby/toddler tip over head first in her floater thing. Just as I started to react her dad jumped in and scooped her up. Could have tragic if we had not been looking at her. My dad once dived into a pool on holiday and rescued a child who had gone under. all too common

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

Whilst we're on rescue stories - I saw a couple of kids being blown out to sea on an inflatable airbed, in Aruba. I had fins on and was able to intercept them and push them upwind back to the beach. They were teenies. I was awaiting the fervent gratitude of their parents - but nobody had even seen them go. rolling eyes
