why the hell didn't this 2 yr old have a life jacket on...anytime my kids and us are by water i make them wear a life jacket they are 7 and 9 yrs old. It's always best to be cautious when by water. I am sorry for the loss. poor baby boy...
are you kidding me!! so you make your kids wear a life jacket to a park and have them swing and climb and play in a life jacket you obviously didn't know all the details... my thoughts and prayers are with your children for having such a crazy parent. Jacob was in the park not at the beach!! Yes there was water there but he never went near the water without the proper pre-cautions. This is one of those tragedies that can't be explained, amnd iof you didn't know the Porters than you wouldn't understand why things were the way they were...
