Instead of passing a law to alarm all pools, maybe parents should be more diligent as far as watching their children.

Ok, so you put in a sensor, and no one is home to hear it?

Regardless, I feel alot of sympathy for the family in such a horrible tragedy.

I feel horrible for this boys family, but I have to say this. I have a pool in my backyard. My backyard has a 6 foot fence around it. My part is done! I should not have to shell out more money because parents are clueless as to what their children are doing! Watch your damn kids!!!

I'm so tired of you heartless b'stards ragging on this poor family. They've just lost their precious angel, and will never feel true peace in their hearts again. You sound like "perfect parents", shelling out your opinions and advice like you're sitting on the right side of God, but the sad truth is.... this was a horrible tragic accident and it could happen to anyone. Judgment and useless laws will not bring this boy back. Maybe alarms on pools will help someone in some situation, but really the best we can do is do our best to protect our kids. He was a strong willed precocious child, and he just slipped out and headed for the cool looking slide in the neighbors yard. I hope none of you ever have to deal with the pain this family is going through. I would save the nasty rhetoric and not tempt Karma!!! Never say never!

It figures. Try to pass MORE pool laws so parents don't have to watch their children.

Little 3 y/o Anthony should NEVER have made it passed his front door, let alone a few doors down with enough time to climb a big fence (wasn't it two fences?).

This was a horrible tragedy that could have been prevented had his parents been paying attention, plain and simple.

It was reported that that was not the first time Anthony left his house without notice. Sadly, it was his last.

His parents failed him miserably.

and even under the watchful eyes of a parent, things do happen to kids.

What's the alternative, more laws to protect mental midgets?
How about IQ tests before being allowed to get knocked up?

Actually, stupid...God has nothing to do with it. And NO this could NOT "happen to anyone" because there are still some of us who know how to supervise a child. There is no way in hell that a 3yr old child of mine would be found roaming the streets by himself, let alone floating in a pool.

Anthony's law should not be for mandating pool alarms. It should states that if your child dies due to agregious lack of supervision, the parent should be jailed for criminally negligent homicide. I'll bet people will start keeping tighter leashes on their children then.
