teach your kids not to bully.
this little girl was bullied into jumping in when they knew she couldnt swim.
so, please teach your kids not to bully, and don't blame this accident on the lifeguard that was on duty, it is not his fault.. it is hard to watch that many kids at once..
but please pray for this family.

Are you serious? Bullied into doing something like that and then those kids don't report that she is in the pool? I cannot believe anyone would do that. That is basically murder in my book. I do hope the police investigate this.

The funeral was yesterday. Kassie - you were correct in what you said. Paige was new to the school. Kids teased/bullied her because she could not swim well and was wearing a life jacket. Then bullied her into jumping in. Why they (or an adult) did not try to save her is totally beyond me. I do hope that those horrible students that did the bullying are held accountable for what they did. There have to be consequences. If they get away with it now -- what kind of future will they have? Who will they kill next? Thanks for letting me know the truth. I hope the lifeguard that was on duty is ok. Personally, I think the teachers should have had parents along to help supervise. Just my opinion though. Take care...

yes bulling has to be stoped, but we as adults in charge of youth in school sports what ever we should have more supervision and teach more of the dangers of what they are doing,any time you let a child go off there is danger we need more people interested in our children as chaporones even volunteers could help our schools and sports.I AM WELL AWARE OF THIS BECAUSE IM IN SPORTS PROGRAMS FOR OUR YOUTH PEOPLE JUST DONT WANT TO HELP ARE DONT HAVE TIME WE GET VERY FEW PARENTS TO BE THER BUT IF A CHILD GETS HURT ITS EVER ONE ELSE.IM A MOTHER OF 5 ALL GROWN AND I WENT TO ALL THERE EVENTS

Yes, there should've been more chaperones, but the Rec Center should've told the school "NO", we can't have 80 kids here, we don't have the staff. One lifeguard and one teacher cannot possibly see everything going on. And those kids that bullied Paige, shame on them! They're swimmers, they know what it's like not to be able to swim. My heart goes out to Traci, even still, and the rest of her family. I have not gone one day, in the entire year since this occurred, that I have not thought about Paige, and Traci.
