The Biology of Drowning
The human body is slightly heavier than fresh water. Consequently, when
unconsciousness takes place, the body sinks. Fat bodies are slightly more
buoyant than thin bodies, but still all bodies will sink in fresh water. If there is
considerable clothing on the body along with shoes, articles in the pockets and
other paraphernalia, it renders the body considerably less buoyant. The question
is often asked, "When a body sinks, how far down will it go?" There is some
dispute o n this point, but the very best evidence indicates that a body will go to
the bottom regardless of how deep the water may be, unless it meets with some
obstruction or upward current which tends to prevent it. As a body sinks into
deep water, the pressure of the water tends to compress gasses in the
abdominal and chest cavities with the result that the body displaces less water as
it sinks deeper and consequently becomes less and less buoyant, the further
down it goes.

If he drowned he would have not been on the surface because his lungs would have been filled with water. Being he was on the surface that indicates there was air in his lungs.

our law is a joke why was the baby out by hisself and how could a two year old go to the water and drowned make it back on land to die i hope who every was watching him at the time pays for it. his life was cut short because his parents wasnt watching him. hell what could be more import that they could let him just walk out the door and in the woods a mile to the water. before knowing the poor lil man was missed hope who ever did this go to hell!!,!!!!!! god bless u baby sleep with the angles they cant hurt u know more.

How does anyone let a two year old wander off one mile without missing it and wouldn't that be the first place to rush to.How long does it take a toddler to go a mile. I'm surethe little fellow didn't run the mile. It's fishy. Noexcuse for this.

most likely the truth wont come out in our life time but on the day of judgement the truth will then come out and if they was foul play then who ever was involved will have to pay for it so lets let the baby rest in peace

Where does the one mile distance come from? I know the area, and its not that far. The paper said 1,000 yards. That is still a good distance I admit, but no where near one mile, let alone 2 as I have seen also.

For a barefoot baby a 1,000 yards is a long trip thru the briars and brush.

My personal observation of this younger generation. If it is convenent to them or they can show child off like in pictures an infromt of others They act as it they are parent of the year. When things arent going well or no one to give them attention for parenting skills they to lazy to get off A$$ to check on, feed or even take time to read a book to the babies they had. Most younger parents dont tuck babies in anymore or read bedtime stories. Just like everything the new wears off.

Well, I have to say I was 19 when I had my first and 26 when I had my second child. I still hug and kiss them everyday and tell them how much I love them. I play games, watch shows, read and even cuddle with them. I can say my "newness" will never wear off. I love them more than anything in the world. We also paint and color, and I always know where they are. I will say that I do things with my children that my parents NEVER did with me...
