Why can't parents watch their children. I have 2 and neither one of them is ever out of my sight. I hope this kid is ok, and may this serve as a lesson to LOCK the gate.

What's the matter? Your mommy didn't give you enough attention so you have to try and get a rise out of someone. How about this....instead of concentrating on Mexicans why don't you take your righteous self and contribute something positive to this earth. Then maybe you will get some recognition. Your time will be served in a better manner instead of hating something or someone who isn't going any where. We Hispanics are hear to stay....sorry Hughey :).

Ditto...right on! What a racial retard this is, and I hope he does not come back on here claiming to be hispanic himself just talking trash about his own race. This happens to any and all races, but who really cares a baby is fighting for his life..right??

Accidents happen quikly and even right before your eyes, it only takes a second for tragedy to strike, no matter how well you watch your kids you should know that you cannot have your eyes on your kids every second. I hope this child recovers and I pray for that poor family who is grieving for their baby.

Dear Judgemental,
Has your child ever made a mess, colored where he/she shouldn't, cut their hair, or skinned their knee when you turned your back for just an instant? What about a speeding ticket? That's all it takes...it happens in an instant and you only reveal your ignorance by posting such judgemental, insensitive nonsense. I lost my son three years ago in a drowning accident - and the doors and gate were locked. I pray that this poor family isn't reading your posting, as they are dealing with enough right now, without having to explain themselves to you. You are heartless.

You are judgemental and heartless. This family is grieving and have suffered and unimaginable loss. It's none of your business - why don't you find something better to do - like volunteer.
