    Hopefully she will get the answers and justice she deserves. This is unacceptable!

    Even the most experienced of swimmers aren't immune from drowning. It could have something as simple as he could have been playing with his friends, and accidentally bumped his head against something.

    You just never know.

    Even those who know how to swim can drown. They could hit their head or pass out from heat stroke/dehydration and land in the water. Our pool had an issue with kids using a grate for their game, and a child's fingers got stuck, and it took them a few moments to free themselves. Wouldn't take long at all in a situation like that for a child to lose consciousness. Knowing how to swim helps, but there are still many things that could go wrong.

    I'm guessing many find it more important/necessary to FEED their family. This is a horrible turn of events for this mother and her family. I can't imagine her pain.

    They have classes in Florida to teach 6 month old babies how to float in the water. I can't image any parent not teaching their child how to swim at a very early age.

    I can't even imagine the pain this family feels.

    I'm so sorry for the heartbreak that this poor mother is going through. I can so see and feel her pain and hope her little boy will recover.

    My heart goes out to Jasmine. Prayers to Jaekwon and his family for a full recovery.

    I feel so much for this family. I can't imagine leaving my child in the trusted hands of someone else and something this tragic happen. But as a mother, I would want answers too. There should have been enough adults to supervise all of the children so why/how did this happen?

    Prayers for this family.
