I hope this is a lesson to all you americans that a nanny (whom I am sure is an immigrant) will do anything for you and yet you have notthing good to say about immigrants.These are people who trying to make an honest living and yet for all you don't want to give them status.BULLSHIT CLEAN YOUR OWN SHIT!!!!!!!

Ok maybe it would have helped if she could swim but this is a step in the right direction. At least someone was watching the children.

So sad but like spare change said at least someone was watching the children. She should be remembered as a Hero. Whether she was illegal or not she still died saving someone elses life. and that alone deserves some respect.

Everyone who commented on her legal status is a coward and has likely done nothing to be proud of their entire life. She is a hero ... please move out of my country. I'd switch you for a hard working illegal any day.

Forget whether she was legal or not - the nanny's family is being hurt further because the mother is fighting the nanny's workers' compensation case.

Real Classy, huh?

Recently, another nanny and one of the kids she was watching drowned in a backyard pool on Long Island!!! Here's a simple rule: If the parents hire a nanny and you have a backyard swimming pool, make sure that THE NANNY KNOWS HOW TO SWIM!!!

You're right. Nannies should be made to take the American Red Cross lifeguard training course to take a job involving a backyard swimming pool!

Told the mother, that the nanny was having an extremely difficult time caring for her children. One child ran into the street. Thank God, the driver saw the child and was able to stop in time. I also witnessed two of the children running naked up the street, as the nanny tried to get one of the other children off of a school bus. Spoke to her about it; but she had the "mind your own business" attitude.
