Dear "cant believe dis happened" I think you might have the sound that the letter D makes with the sound the letters TH make. And I don't know if anyone has ever told you this (usually taught in elementary school), but there is no E at the end of the word no.

RIP.11 yo Poor kid made a poor decision entering the pool."Friends"acquan tences made a poor decision by not getting help quickly.Pool owners made poor decision letting children unsupervised to go in and then not responding appropiatly.21 yo standing there "perplexed as to what to do and boyfriend who fished him out with a pool scimmer".The 9 yo rose up to the occasion and initiated the recovery.Lots of blame and nightmares to deal with at such a young age.Who's protecting these children?Somebody was suppose top dive in and get that kid out as fast as possible.

Really? Perhaps the reason we'll never "advance as a society" is because an adult can be told a child is drowning next door and yet can have a response like yelling out a 2 story window to frantic youngsters "go get an adult to help.".
What the heck is she? Is she bedridden?
I'm disabled and use a cane, sometimes need a walker or wheelchair, But if i was told a child was drowning in the IGP next door i would speed hobble like the Flash to get over there and get that kid out of the water, ASAP.
