  • a reminder to always be wary of the kids around any type of water


  • At what age is it safe to allow a child to bath alone ? Many would expect it to be safe at the age of 6 y.o.


  • Very sad and so easy for this sort of thing to happen too. A momentary distraction can mean a lifetime of sadness.


  • How heartbreaking, so sad to hear this.


  • Poor little girl! It’s terrible that such accidents still happen. :-(


  • How sad. I’m really careful to supervise at bath time, but it’s a challenging time of day fr many.


  • Poor little girl. These stories are always so sad.
