This was a 13 year old. Most people don't keep an eagle eye on a teenager the way they would a toddler or school aged child. Accidents happen.

I'm sure they are beating themselves up enough as it is. But really, who out there would constantly monitor a 13 year old in the pool?

of course it matters!!! without knowing exactly what happened i can't comment further about this boys parents specifically. accidents do happen even under a watchfull eye, other times you see kids how have no parenting going on who do get hurt in accidents that were preventable. i am hoping it wasn't the later.

I would!!! I have a 13 yr old (well, he's 12, going on 13 next month). Im a single parent thou, so when we go to disney, its just the two of us. So ya, we're constantly together and im always monitoring him. I'd never dream of going for a nap while he's in the pool for example.

I agree with the pp, if the parents knew he wasnt a strong swimmer in 5ft of water, why didnt they keep a close eye on him? I'm not trying to wag my finger at them and critisize, cause its true that accidents can happen....but I do wonder.

It is a good rule to swim with a buddy all the time. Also I had heard that young teen boys need as much watching in the pool as a younger child as they do things. Maybe his parents were there and just stepped away for a moment who knows. I pray for this child and his family. Things can happen so quickly.

my son is 15 he also has special needs so i have always kept an eye on him, a close eye. like you goofy i'm not blaming, just wondering... i can't believe the statement "what does it matter?" i would feel like i did everything to save him if he was under supervision and an accident still happened..atleast you know you were there and did everything you could. if you were in the room or in the bar then well that is pretty awful. i hope they did everything they could and he recovers.

The article says he drowned while playing with family members in the pool. It's entirely possible he had a seizure or something and that is what caused him to go under. Let's not crucify the parents just yet.

Probably everyone should take a deep breath...
To be fair, the information on this has been updated several times this morning. You are referencing the latest update (10:20am) that has details that weren't available earlier.

The story said his cousin pulled him out of the pool so he wasn't by himself. Could have been horseplay and hit his head, who knows. But lucky for him he wasn't by himself or things would have ended much differently.
