It's a horrible thing, but it happens. I love my pool, I have it protected with a fence and an alarm. My concern is with the family. What a horrendous thing to have to live with for the rest of your life. RIP baby girl and God grant mercy and piece of mind on her parents.

Have to watch those little ones with a pool around. God love her, she just did not know the dangers of that water.

Did you know that swimming pools kill more children in this country that guns do?

Honestly, I won't buy a house with a pool.
