The mom was probably sleeping off a hang over.

This very same thing happened to my neighbor. However, they were able to revieve the little girl at the hospital. It was one of those little miracles in life. Here is the kicker...At that time, they had 4 children...the oldest daughter who was 8 at the time was left in charge of her 4 younger siblings. This woman was a stay at home Mom....
They went on to produce 4 MORE children. You would have thought she would have become a better, more attentive parent. NOPE...those kids pretty much ran wild. Now they are teenagers and young adults. Not surprising is that none of them have ever amounted to anything.

Another example of a heartless creep. I just hope something this horrible never happens to someone you love. Or maybe then you'd have some freaking compassion. You people with your self-righteous attitudes make me sick to my stomach.
Sadly, Charlie is right on the money. These people continue to breed because then they don't have to work. This is how they work the system.

EXACTLY> THANK YOU VERY MUCH for pointing out what obviously these other bleeding heart idiots are missing, awww the poooor mom - are you all for real??? This woman was an UNFIT parent and the child paid the price. the really sad part is that this is how way way too many children are being raised nowadays, if you aren't going to take care of them properly, keep your friggin' legs closed and don't have them !!!!

These drownings are such a sad, preventable tragedy. Besides the #1 prevention measure: SUPERVISION, there should be other layers of protection in place, such as alarms, pool fence barrier and swimming survival lessons. See www.infantswim.com for information on the ISR program which teaches babies as young as 6 months old how to get into a backfloat from a face-down postition in the water and stay there until they can be rescued. Children over 1 year old are taught a swim-float-swim sequence which is repeated until safety is reached. A local instructor can be found at infantswim.com .

Please a tragedy has occured. Finger pointing solves nothing. We are human and we make mistakes. Unfortunately her mistake caused her child's life. This baby is with God now. The family and the mon has to deal with living and this cold, heartless world. Remember "God only cries for the living........"
Be kind, one day you will need kindness
