What's the status of little boy that was still in the hospital? Also, was there a funeral for the Sunset boy that drowned or a fund site to send the family a donation?
Just wondering

It is on Choctaw Dr. in Sunset. I don't know exactly if the pond is in the neighborhood or not.

Choctaw Dr. is off of I-49 between Sunset & Hwy 182 exit. Choctaw is a very nice area. I believe
the pond is a private yard, for a local doctor

I wonder if there is not more to that story? I just can't imagine. They went there to wash themselves off. Why in the world would they be sucked down(or however it happened) I have 2 ponds and this gives me a lot to think about. I just cannot picture how this happened and to 2 of them!?????

They could not swim. The pond went from knee high to the waist then dropped off deep. They were in the water and I think they both were pulling each other down trying to get out of the deep end and drown each other.
