[QUOTE=LittleMissMagic;1131056]That’s terrible. So sad for that family.
I don’t understand how this could happen. I would say why weren’t his parents watching, but he was a teenager and in 4 ft deep water, so it’s not even like inability to swim was a problem. I wonder if they were horseplaying… I feel like that’s the only way it could’ve happened, but why wouldn’t they have noticed sooner? Crazy.[/QUOTE]
It can happen so quickly. Kids fooling around in the water…my dh once had this idiot friend who - under the guise of “just having fun” held my daughter under the water once. In a couple of seconds she was totally panicked and swallowing water. My dh grabbed her up and she was very close to passing out. She’s still traumatized by that. Needless to say I gave that idiot ten seconds to get off our property…so in a couple of seconds, just young teens horsing around - it can happen.
