  • I don’t swim in public pools anymore but when I did I was constantly pulling kids out of the water when they were drowning and NOT 1 parent was there watching their children, and 1 kid (about 5 yrs old) ran and got his mother and told her I hurt him and out comes the mother (I’m now rolling my eyes) screaming at me to quit hitting her child I called her a crack head and within 5 minutes out comes 10 ppl waiting for me to leave and I had a 10 month old and a 7 yr old kid with me. Where was the mother and other drug dealers 30 minutes before when I pulled the child out and made sure he was ok.

    • I can’t vouch for everyone involved in these incidents, however the incident that happened on March 11th happens to be a family I know and have known for years. The father was in the Army for years and served in Afghanistan and is now a member of the Guard and the mother is a a loving stay at home mom. They are not potheads and do not do drugs. It is a horrible thing that happened to the family, all of these families, and on top of it they have to read nasty comments from judgemental people like you.

  • We don’t need it to near summer or to be summer for parents to pay attention to their children. We live in Florida . There are pools ,spas and water everywhere all year round. Wake up and pay attention. Little lives are precious and deserve to live.
