Leaves a pool looking like that? With NO security gate around it. That is just asking for trouble. I too lost a child and you never get over that pain. My loss was out of my control! This loss could have been prevented. Sad story it breaks my heart.

the pain she is going thru i know. my son died 6 months ago and just like WHO said you will never get over the pain. my son died of natural causes her sons death could have been prevented but god works in misterious ways and we don't know why he does these things. who are we to question him. all im saying is may he rest in peace and i hope this mother can find a way to forgive herself for not being there in his time of need. i don't want to imagine what was going thru his head when he couldn't get back up from the pool. i pray that he is in a much happier place with all the angels watching over this hateful world. r.i.p. sweetie your in a better place

Well a simple case of a neglectful mother. Where was she when she should have been watching her kids? As far as the father both parents should have cleaned the pool it was so dirty it looked like a septic tank. Further they should have had a fence around the pool to prevent this from happening.

Sad to say 'dazzling' but it pisses me off how someone can be so blind to neglect. And its 'sore' subject not 'soar' like an eagle flying. If a mom puts a gun 2 a kids head that is NOT Gods will. That is the work of the devil. People wjo abuse and or neglect children is not gods will. And before anyone gets in an uproar I am NOT saying that was the situation. All I am saying isa this was an accident that could have been prevented. Showing that pool in the news is an embarassment and proves how dirty someone can be. Do you not respect where you live? That you would have that mess in your backyard? A human life is GONE because of neglect.

Granted my niece should of kept a closer eye on him BUT it is also the landlords responsibility to make sure there are no safety hazzards n the home they r renting out and the landlord has been asked plenty of time to have something done about the pool being that way...so before you go talking smacking and leaving negative remarks think about what we are going thru....r.i.p papito tia mammi loves you with all my heart...you are now our guardian angel!!!!

Renting a house! No wonder it was in such deplorable condition. If you rent a house with a pool. Pay the money so that you can use it. But its always easier to blame everyone else. What a sad case. And no insurance or money to bury your own child? SAD everyone deserves a proper burial but I do not understand ?? If you have children be able to afford them. Or quit having kids. No wonder our world is going down the tubes. And before the uproar I'm talking about people in general NOT just this family. It just seems like the norm now. Ohhh my kid died so chinga let's have a fundraiser to make money. How about get a job!!! Work hard for what you have and quit relying on hadouts. Take action for what you brought into this world. My heart breaks for this child who was not given a chance to live. If you have a 2year old and rent a house that has a pool. It is YOUR responsibility to keep your children safe. You rented the house and knew of that so called hazard.

HOW DARE YOU USE THIS POST TO LET OUT THE ANGER YOU HAVE BUILT UP INSIDE. THIS COULD HAVE HAPPEN TO ANYONE. RICH, POOR, HOMELESS, YOU OR ME!!!! THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN WHO DIE EVERYDAY BECAUSE OF THIS. CHILDREN ARE ALL A BLESSING FROM GOD & GOD NEEDED HIM!! ANOTHER THING HE WILL HAVE A DECENT BURIAL.SO MANY PEOPLE DON'T HAVE INSURANCE & IF YOU DO WELL THAT'S GREAT BUT DON'T HATE ON THOSE THAT DON'T. YOUR SELFISHNESS & HATRED NEED TO STAY OFF OF THIS POST... I DON'T EVEN KNOW THIS FAMILY BUT MY HEART ACHES FOR THEM BECAUSE THE HATEFUL PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD!!

I am far from selfish. I intend to help this family. It is not the childs fault. I do have children and I do have a pool and its not a matter of rich or poor. I'm not hating. Sickens me that people always blame someone else. Step up take the blame. My point is awareness. If I could help one family from going thru something like this then so be it. I did. This should have not happened is my point. Can you not understand that. If you can not afford to insure your children or yourself. Why are you having children? Why is it someone elses responsibility to pay. American way? Pathetic. So if u think that's hate. U r wrong. Its sick and tired that my insurance and my taxes etc are going up because people like you do not pay for anything and expect everything free. My comments are not directed to this individual family. But to our society as a whole. Although most of you on here will never comprehend what I just said. My heart goes to this family. There is nothing like the loss of a child. I lost a child to natural causes. But this is something that could have been prevented. And yes does anger me. If you live in those conditions step up your game and protect your children. I would love to be the ad litem attorney for the rest of the children. Because it can obviously happen to them as well.
