  • Wow, i dont even know where to start. I use to live next to this lady and my sistwr niw lives in my old house a couple houses down. This lady is beyond a horrible example of a mother. She is a drug addict and let me just say she was in a tub and she’s not even 7 months old. Tub filled almost ALL the way to the top! She was so high and strung out on drugs and her stoey has changed multiple times as far as why she walked away from her daughter in the tub with nothing but a ball! She wasnt arrested and yes they had to revive her thank god she came back to. And as far as i know DCF is not involved yet because she is being released today to the mother! Absolutely sickening! Oh and the whole time she was pregnant she still used drugs and baby was born addicted and had to stay in hospital for a month because of withdrawals! I cant even believe how much this poor little girl has been through and i pray she continues to have amazing angels on her shoulders because she definitely needs it! I myself have called DCF and expressed my concerns. I never have seen her sober! I hope she gets help and i hope this was a wake up call and she learns before this little girl isnt so lucky next time.

  • By the way as for everyone who wants to see the parents punished or believe there’s a lack of parents have been getting punished for years already on situations like this including long prison sentences some of which are very warranted however I being a parent who raised two boys can tell you I’ve had many a scary moment where my heart went up through my throat and a panic attack on many occasions when they’re that certain age you turn your head for a split second and phone they’re gone it happens to any parent not to mention any parent that this happens to has the rest of their life to live in anguish already about the loss of their child let alone Be bashed and sent to prison for what is common human mistake once again many of these is warranted to charge the parents many is not that poor mom in that picture is already suffering severe pain let us pray for her and the child, my youngest of two sons by the way is 15 and I still don’t like leaving him out of my sight, I guess they’re as they say they’re always our babies

  • First and foremost my sympathy and prayers go out to this family. I can’t imagine the pain and anguish they are suffering.

    I moved here from St. Augustine, St. John’s County, Fl , in November. I lived there for 25 years with a population now at approximately 235,087. There are far more pools in that county than here. Additionally they have 40 miles of accessible beaches. I have never heard of so many drownings in an area. There must be something in the water here besides bodies.

  • Thank You Fire Rescue for all you do every day. You cover our ass when we ALL do stupid things or treat ourselves w disrespect.

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 8:43 am
  • Start holding the parent responsible and these so called accidents will become a rare occurrence. The parents do not deserve to keep this child. If you are not going to supervise your children please don’t have them.

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 3:42 am
  • In thinking our Lord might not have answered a prayer in the timely manner in which you had hoped at some point. The creator or big bang or God..whatever name you choose…exists!!period!! We are here aren’t we? Maybe you are angry for a bad part of your life that you felt God should’ve interfered in..idk..the laws of the universe keep everything in balance..we never know why when or how. If we did this world would be over before it reason for spiteful remarks or personal attacks…

  • every other day now children are drowning! prayers for this small tender child to heal 100% ….is it that we are over populated? 1 is very young . you cant ever know what and where they may wander. …. there may have been water left in a tub and baby climbed in . we dont know so . dont judge this sad woman. lets just pray that baby is alright… GOD IS GREAT. non believers – HOWS THAT WORKING OUT FOR YOU SO FAR? lol ..

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 1:23 am
  • Prayers for this child smh. It doesn’t take much water for a little one. Stepping out to get that towel etc is one second to long. Not saying that’s what happened. Just guessing since it happened in a tub.
    (Drowning with non fatal submersion)
    Hey Amy, God is good God is great you better get with it b4 it’s too late.

  • You aren’t going to change the Tom.

    They aren’t educated enough to see another point of view.

    You need to write to your audience or you’ll lose them.

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 12:28 am
  • Prayers to this child however, where was the mother when this child was drowning? Parents, please keep a closer eye on your small ones.

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 12:07 am
  • Just a bit of information…’s actually called and referred to as a ” near drowning” when the patient survives. For a person to drown means they didn’t survive.

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 12:06 am
      • Tom, thumbs up on the prompt and concise reply… There is no stopping time and we can all learn something. You gave a polite, sincere accurate response and your not being sarcastic or angry goes a long way toward showing your intelligence. Have a great rest of the day….we are reading & listening

        Saturday, 9 June 2018, 10:18 am
    • Thanks for the clarification. I have said this on several posts regarding ” drowning vs near drowning.

      Saturday, 9 June 2018, 12:24 am
  • Surfadude, FOR GODS SAKES PLEASE USE COMMAS AND PERIODS! Did you not learn this in school. Also, please make some sense when you write, you sound like an uneducated idiot. Before you put other people down learn how to speak and write correctly.

    Saturday, 9 June 2018, 12:02 am
    • Before you jump someone’s ass about being uneducated and having poor sentence structure you, yourself should know you don’t put a period at the end of a sentence that is in the form of a question.

      “Did you not learn this in school.”

    • he writes as if he’s tweaking

      Saturday, 9 June 2018, 11:17 am
    • What does it matter about commas and periods. It’s a post to a sad story. We don’t care right now about grammar. School days are over for most of us. Are you some kind of English professor?

      Sunday, 10 June 2018, 4:29 pm
  • Hey just for the record and I am speaking as a retired Tampa Bay area firefighter….a drowning means that the individual died. A near drowning is what happened in this case.
    Either way it is horrible but thank God the baby is still alive.
    Just thought I would clear that up because had the baby actually drowned, it would be so much more horrible.
    On another note…instead of using this thread to ridicule someone for their belief in God, why not just wish the baby well and send your heartfelt thoughts out to the family? Notice I didn’t say prayers. I wouldn’t want to offend anyone for Goodnes sake.

    Friday, 8 June 2018, 11:40 pm
      • I guess there some individuals who just can’t grasp your point Tom, I know you have reiterated this statement on other reports concerning drownings. Bless you and your patience my friend. You are doing a great job. This incident happened right down the street from my house and I was on the way home when I saw the emergency vehicles. Before I arrived home and got inside to check the status you had already posted the information.

        Saturday, 9 June 2018, 2:56 am

  • Clyde, I have been trying to reach others with the same response for so long. You are RIGHT in every aspect of your comment. Thank you.
    Amy you are the epitome of ignorance. The comments made in behlf of our Lord Jesus Christ stirs up something in your heart for you to even make such a comment. This proves that God’s power is greater than your ignorance.

    Friday, 8 June 2018, 11:22 pm
  • All i am going to say to you that think there is no God consider this. How in the world is there 6 Billion people on the planet and no two have the same fingerprints or identical dna. How does this happen? Not by chance. NO WAY. Cant explain it any other way.

    Friday, 8 June 2018, 10:26 pm

    Friday, 8 June 2018, 9:09 pm
    • Don’t feel sorry for me… Pictures speak a 1000 words. The mother was hanging on to that cell phone. So pray to this so called God all you want…Give to to the religión of your choice. I will stick to doing the right thing by design.

      Sunday, 10 June 2018, 7:56 am
  • When are the so called ‘adults’ going to learn!!!!? young children must be watched EVERY minute when around water??? Such a tragic accident can be avoided by simply safeguarding the child. Pray the little one recovers fully with not side effects.

    Friday, 8 June 2018, 8:54 pm

      • Wow, seriously just wow!

        Friday, 8 June 2018, 10:04 pm
      • Amy prayers do work out. Prayers have saved many lives in my family. Even miracles that doctors can’t explain.

        Saturday, 9 June 2018, 5:03 am
      • Dear Amy..I wish I could meet you and spend time with you. My God has been so present in my life that those who know me well soon see how He does answer my prayers. Little prayers, big prayers, even prayers that people cautioned I was foolish to pray for. It is okay for you to have doubts regarding my God. It is okay for you to not believe in Him or what He can do. It is not okay for you to criticize other people who are only trying to be kind in the way they know how to be kind. You may not agree with someone who prays to a God that you don’t believe in. You won’t be the first or the last person in history to not share this belief. But don’t be a bully because you believe something different. Being a bully speaks more about your lack of self esteem than anything else. On a side God doesn’t need a cell phone to answer me. That’s very short sighted.
