This student died DURING class. Where were the teachers??? What is the protocol for leaving a swim class??? Why was this student not missed sooner???
There is NO excuse for this. Who is covering this one up? This is not an accident. This is gross negligence of the most egregious sort. How do you not notice one of your students has drowned ??????????
I mean, the whole state knows Wenatchee's teachers are scum. This proves it, wouldn't you say?
You sit on your ass playing with your Iphone for your whole class while your student drowns;then you march off not even noticing someone is missing.

Criminally negligent manslaughter occurs where there is an omission to act when there is a duty to do so, or a failure to perform a duty owed, which leads to a death. The existence of the duty is essential because the law does not impose criminal liability for a failure to act unless a specific duty is owed to the victim. It is most common in the case of professionals who are grossly negligent in the course of their employment. An example is where a doctor fails to notice a patient's oxygen supply has disconnected and the patient dies (R v Adomako).
