Tragic. Precautions need to be taken with these fish ponds, that seem to be very popular , as I see more people adding them to their yards.

These "ponds" need to be treated just like swimming pools, a child small enough can drown as shown with this very sad accident.

The child's death was very tragic, but it was also senseless. Where was the babysitter in all of this? Just about anyone with half a brain knows that when you care for young children you have to be on top of things at all times because the child is too young to understand danger.

and where in the world was the babysitter? I so totally agree with MissScarlett76.
When a child is too young they tense to blind us adult, because they are too quick in doing everything.
