Our last cruise we watched a mother/father of 3 kids sit and drink while their child under 2 kept wandering over and leaning over the side of the pool. If that kid fell in I don't think they would have noticed.
How very sad. I can only imagine how guilty the older brother will feel if he was left to "keep an eye on his brother". My condolences to all,including the people who tried their best to save the boy. I think it would haunt me forever..
Hits close to home too,as my daughters are 10 and 6. I've already prepared them for the possibility of not spending alot of time in the pool on the Fantasy if it's too crowded. Arriving two days early to give the kids all the pool time they want at the Ron Jon instead. I'll be doing my normal watching the kids like a hawk routine..
Prayers for his family.
That's so sad :-( And it happens everywhere. Hubby is a cardiac intensivist at a children's hospital and had 2 drownings last week - one swimming pool and one bath tub :-(
Thats so sad. I just cannot imagine. That poor family.
A ten year left to be responsible of a 6 year old in a pool? I'm afraid to let a 16 year old babysitter watch my daughter in a pool even with a life vest on. It breaks my heart. Not blaming victims at all- just promoting pool safety- but with small children you should be in hugs reach of them in a pool and teach them pool safety, the Stewie the Duck learns how to swim book is great for young kids. http://www.stewietheduck.com/home.cfm
Awful, tragic and sad - prayers go to the family and all involved.
Such a sad story. Bless the family.
OP, you may want to add in your title that this was not on Disney.
