How tragic...a child of that age should never be left in the water alone, not even for a second...Where did common sense go?

Absolutely yes, especially in a fast moving river...

We couldn't even think of bringing a two year old next to a river...we would be so nervous about something happening to our child we wouldn't be able to enjoy ourselves...

That is why we would go to a lake and the kid would stay within hand reach always...a engineer beach front with no deep surpises

Right, one stumble in the water with nobody looking and there is big trouble...and a two year old is always stumbling and tripping all over the place...

I wonder why they went to the Vernon dam...?

-They will relive this tragedy over and over again for the rest of their lives.

-They are in my prayers and I offer my deepest sympathy

"Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two will be children aged 14 or younger. Drowning is the sixth leading cause of unintentional injury death for people of all ages, and the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14 years."
