I rarely pray but will make an exception in this case. God bless this child and his family. Bless too the people who own the pool.

This is terrible and needless. A child should not have been able to access a neighbor's pool where were the gates and safety latches?

How can a two year old kid even walk wearing adult shoes? I think the parents aren't telling the whole story.

I have walked the path of loosing a young child, but to an illness not accident. I will pray for the family and the family who owns the pool also. Such a tragedy.

Why would a 2 yr old wander out of the house in the first place with out the parents should had been watch it all times and the door locked where the child couldnt get out.that upsets me big time i got a 2 yr old granddaughter and i watch every move she does when she is awake.

How horrible for the parents and the neighbor. I had a pool with a fence and a pad lock on it. The neighbor kids often would climb the fence and get in. They were only 6 and 8. Kids are fast. Finally we had words with the parents because we were afraid they would get hurt. This "pool" could merely be a plastic baby wading pool. It is tragic for everyone.

So nice to see people turn a tragic incident into a practice session for their hindsight and finger-pointing. What the hell's wrong with you people?
