Twin Baby Boys Drown After Falling In The Family Pool. How Tragic!

Mon, July 18, 2011 5:30pm EDT by 1 Comment

The one-year-olds’ mom desperately tried to revive them after finding them unconscious in her backyard pool in Visalia, California on Friday — but it was too late.

Firefighters called to the scene think the twins wandered off through a sliding door before finding their way to the swimming pool and tumbling in. Such a tragic story. Is your pool baby-proofed?“It’s a very unfortunate, tragic accident that hopefully no family will ever have to go through,” Visalia fire chief Danny Wristen told ABC 30.

“But it does happen and it’s just a great reminder for people to protect their pool from their kids and keep an eye on their kids.”

Such valuable advice.

It’s unknown if the pool met city safety requirements — but the unnamed mom is NOT facing police charges.

Should the parents be prosecuted?

These tragedies happen TOO OFTEN, particularly in the hot summer months.

Here’s a few great safety tips:

– Build a fence around your pool
– Keep the gate shut
– Always supervise children when they’re around the pool.
– Teach your kids to swim as soon as they’re old enough
– Learn how to resuscitate

Can you suggest any others, HollyMoms?
