Hard to believe that they are considering pressing charges against the parents. Their family has already been punished enough.

I have mixed feelings on this one. The way the parents must feel right now is unimaginable. On the other hand, what would it have taken to repair that fence?

Why, why, why do people live in homes with pools and toddlers?
I did, and we had top and bottom locks on all the doors, but I was still a nervous wreck and had someone come out and teach her to swim as soon as she could walk.

This tragedy occurs over and over again. A man from the fire department told me the number of children who drown in residential pools every year is shocking.

Nobody wins here. Charge the parents and take them away from the rest of the kids? This sounds like a "perfect storm" of events that all tragically fell into place, not habitual neglect or gross negligence. The only ones that win will be the lawyers defending them. Cha-Ching!

You are right. Nobody wins. I'm sure they won't charge the parents. It was a tragic accident. The old "yes, buts" just don't apply here.

I have always felt that if you have little kids, you have no business having a pool at your home. It's too risky.
