It is againt the laws of nature for a parent to have to bury their child. May this little girl reach the hand of God and rest in peace with the Angels. My deepest condolencs to her family.

And who will the parents blame for this happening? The only ones to blame are the parents themselves for failing to watch a 3-year old who doesn't know any better. But I'm sure a lawsuit will come out of this and there will be blame placed on everyone but the parents. It's never the parents fault anymore when anything happens to a child. It's the schools', the teachers', the neighbors', everyone else's fault but not the parents.

Agreed. I had a pool but my kids were not allowed in till I was out to watch them and their friends. It's simple. Parents some of them don't want to parent today, or let's face it. It takes your back turned for a second for a child to get in trouble. So sad, but I bet she is an angel in heaven. So innocent.

You're right, the parents are to blame for this one. The child was way too young to be unattended.
It's a sad thing that they lost their child, but they should of been more aware of her.
Too late to cry now for their stupidity

Is anyone WATCHING their children ANYMORE?! An Anthony's LAW ISN'T the answer! A Parent's RESPONSIBILITY is!

Anthony's law was suggested to take the blame off the parents and put it somewhere else....basically all it did was keep his mother from going to jail and taking the responsibility for not watching her son, I am his Aunt and I would never support that law...his mother was sound asleep and he was three houses away, so there was no way she was ever going to hear that alarm. She was a stay home mother with no other responsibilities other then taking care of her son, my brother worked 14 hour days so she could be there. Iím very sorry for this family's loss as I am very sorry for my family's loss...but I'm sorry I will say it again, there is more to this story just like there was more to our story, but trust me you are never going to hear the real facts. They will only tell you what sells papers. believe me I know they never told the truth about the events that surrounded the death of my nephew...god help how much we miss him....my wish is that people can learn from this and take extra precaution when it comes to their children...and if you really want to pass a law make a law that holds parents responsible for their children.... As a mother, I would be first in line to support that law.....God Bless you Chloe, I hope you and Anthony find each other in HEAVENÖ
