Boy pulled from Disney resort pool dies

Such a tragedy, and underlines that no matter how good of a swimmer you think your kids are things like this can happen in a blink of an eye.

I saw this posted on the Theme Parks board a couple of nights ago.

This is why you can't leave your kids unsupervised, even if they are good swimmers. We don't really know what happened but a good swimmer doesn't prevent an accident from happening.

So sad. This will probably make future trips to the Happiest Place on Earth very difficult for this poor family. My heart goes out to them

Its so true, it doesnt matter how good a swimmer you think your kids are. Accidents happen all the time When I was about 12 I was diving into a pool in Tenerife and messing with my cousins. They dared me to go in head first, no hands in front so I did and bashed my head off the bottom of the pool and passed out. My uncle who was watching dived in and got me but ended up concussed and in hospital - could have been much worse! And my parents would have always said I was too sensible to do silly things like that but just goes to show what peer pressure will do!
My heart goes out to the family, such a sad sad tragedy
