A little correction it sounds like he went to a hospital and he airlifted to another hospital both sites are giving different times for when they think they found him.

So terrible... I hope this poor boy turns out alright. Not sure where the parents were during all of this, but why aren't there any lifeguards on the ship? IMHO wherever there is a pool there should be a lifeguard.

Cruise ships don't have life guards their signs letting you know that their no life gaurs on duty the parents was off some where they came after they was working on the kid they had to page them them.

Also even if they did have Life Guards there that is not an excuse for not watching your children. Lifeguards are not babysitters.

I prefer to wait for details on where the parents were when this happened. So sad. I hope the boy will be ok.

I'm not excusing the boy's parents for not watching him but if they had lifeguards it wouldn't have happened either. Also, even if you do watch your kids the pools can get extremely crowded and the signs of drowning in a small child aren't what you would think. My hope is that the boy recovers and that Disney puts a lifeguard at each pool on the ship. They're all about safety so I'm surprised they wouldn't have one there. And before anyone flames me, having a lifeguard would not mean that you could just drop your kids off at the pool and not watch them, but with so many people onboard it would be excellent to have another pair of eyes watching for things like that.

Their was some disers who was on the ship who said about the parents was not their so I go off what they say. Parents bed to take response ability for heir kids Disney not the parent their signs posted saying their no life guards so you know ahead of time before your kids go in the pool. Accidents do happen and not saying if the parents was their it wouldn't happen but for everyone I start jumping on Disney and saying their should he life guards they need to contact every cruise line about this.

The article dose not say disboards is the fan site but their another site that says the source was someone from disboards and gave the disboards name. And if you go on the cruise line forum you see the person is on the ship and is the one they quoted.

I would think that if Disney has a lifeguard at the pool then they would assume the liability of someone drowning. By posting signage and not having lifeguards on duty they may be covered from liability.

Parents shouldn't be just assume their kids are safe in the pool, lifeguards or not. Unfortunately a tough lesson for this family if that's the case here.

I don't think their life guard on any cruise ship not just Disney I got that off the thread on the Disney cruise forum.

I'm pretty sure this is correct. Plus, I'm pretty sure DCL is afraid that if parents know there is a Lifeguard on duty, many would totally abdicate responsibility for watching their kids because "Well, there's a Lifeguard!". It's one of those sad but true circumstances. There's only so much even a Lifeguard can do with so many kids in the pools.

I think we all need to be careful about facts and not what we pick up from other posts. For instance, I hadn't seen anything about the parents being paged. I had read they were in the area and came running.

I wouldn't judge anyone.
