I keep praying for his recovery! Can't imagine what the family are going through right now.
It is just a horrible and tragic accident....
Thanks for the update. I'm really glad to hear the boy is doing better. I hope he makes a full and speedy recovery. May this all be a distant memory with no lasting effects for this family.

I would highly encourage anyone with a child age 5 and under to consider taking their child to ISR swim lessons. It is basically survival swimming for young children. We have done it every year since ODD was 13 months old.

Most drownings occur when people are around. And it happens quietly...not noisily like in the movies. My mom was very much against ISR for ODD but a couple of months after her lessons finished, she accidentally fell into the pool (and I was RIGHT next to her...she slipped on the pool deck). Because of her ISR training, my then 17 month old had already flipped over and was floating before I could jump in and get her.

If it had not been for ISR, I would have had to call 911.

To add, demanding that the world be 100% safe and corporations must have ever possible fail safe available, has to stop as well. People need to take personal responsibility and understand life has risks.

Please remember, this brave little man is fighting very hard and has a difficult road to recovery. There are regular updates on his FB. He needs our prayers and positive thoughts.

Thank God, someone was there, that knew what to do...and wasn't concerned with "liability".

Why wouldn't you have just jumped in and grabbed her?

I've been reading Chase's facebook page. Poor kid, slow progress. He's breathing on his own but they say most likely he's not progressing because of the brain damage. The nurses have said that this could be as good as it gets. However, you just never know. The lord works in mysterious ways. He just might be up and about before we know it. So keep those prayers and positive thoughts coming.

The child would have gone under, before mom could have grabbed her. She didn't need to call 911 because of ISR. Remember seconds matter.

I think the other poster and I misunderstood what ISR actually is...didnt realise that since she was floating (on her back), she was doing what she was taught in ISR class. We read it a whole different way. Thanks for clarifying!

Um, no. Every baby who falls into a pool goes under. Try jumping in the pool and not going under, it doesn't work. For a baby to swim back to the surface and flip, takes about as long as it would for you to jump in and rescue them.

Your baby isn't going to drown in the amount of time it takes you to jump in the pool. That's not what "seconds matter" means.

The ISR program is pretty controversial. It's not something I would do with my child.

My daughter did the ISR when she just turned 3. It was unbelievable traumatic for all of us, at the time I was feeling like I regretted what we had gotten into. She hated it and I was sick to my stomach over putting her thru it!!! Shortly after we were all in the pool one day and she fell off a boat and before we could get to her she got herself back to the surface and was floating on her back exactly like she had been taught, it was like a reflex, and then was able to grab back onto the boat. That was the only time I saw her having to use that skill in a spontaneous situation but it did impress me. I do think on her last lesson they literally threw her in with her clothes and sneakers on.
