Backyard Pool Claims the Lives of Two Little Boys

Posted under 47c9f961-93a3-403a-9c73-0e2a7ec3aca9

Chrissie Coon, a police spokesperson, spoke on the case of a 2-year-old boy who drowned in a residential pool on January 13. 

The boy was apparently surrounded by several family members one of their backyards at a regular gathering.  The police would not comment on whether or not a fence surrounded the pool, which would have possibly prevented the boy from slipping in.

The family told police the boy fell in the water while their backs were turned.  By the time they had reached him, it was too late.

Coon responded to a similar incident a mere, week and a half later.  She responded to a call regarding an 18-month-year-old boy who had fallen in to a backyard pool while the parents were outside.

The names of the boys were not released.

Drowning is a tragic accident.  It is more tragic when it happens in the split second that you were not watching.  If you have lost a child while in the hands of another, you can call a Sheboygan personal injury lawyer at 800-242-2874 to discuss the next steps to be taken.
