How does a 15 month old accidently drown in a pool? At 15 months that child would have been in arms length of me. Someone wasnt supervising. Shame shame.

Where did this 15 month old drown at? Is this about the same woman who let a baby .. I mean.. unsupervised a baby she was babysitting that drowned a year ago and now her baby drowned too? I think I read about that one somewhere.

Oh.. wait.. I am assuming you are talking about the story I just found about the 15 month old in Easley, SC.. but there is also a story about a 15 month old who drowned on the 29th of may in a puddle of water on the pool cover. Crazy how many young toddlers are unsupervised these days.

I guess I'm not an a+ mom, but I can see how this could happen pretty easily seeing as it takes literally seconds to happen. Like notice something on the other end of the yard, and go to grab it. Turn back around and your kid tipped into a 4inch kiddie pool. Lots of scenerios which is why its the 2nd leading cause of death in children.

I had to now the front yard. Not too big. I put Ethan in his baby swing under the lanai, and I'd look at him every couple seconds. He was asleep, I was mowing towards the ditch and I flipped around and two pits were running up towards the porch. Grant it they were far from vicious, but in literally 10-15 seconds of facing the opposite direction something can happen!

Right but I guess my view on the one where the kid drowned in the pool cover.. In ground pools are suppose to have a fence around them and above ground pools are suppose to have the ladder up when not in use.. at least here in Michigan.

I didn't read or hear about any of the stories, but it only takes a couple inches of water, and is their law fence around the full yard with the pool or around perimeter of pool? Most I know only have their backyard itself fenced. 

RMof2 (Mod) --- 5 years ago -

In Michigan it is perimeter of the pool. My Aunt had an in ground pool and had to have a fence around the pool even though she had a fence around her yard. It was ugly but safety was more important. The above ground pool didn't need it's own fence but if the ladder was caught down while the pool was not in being used you could get a ticket.
