my brother's former boss has like 5 kids, ranging from age 1 to about 7, all in which him and his wife could care less about. they let them do whatever they want. anyway, the other day they found their 1 year old at the bottom of there pool, PURPLE. he was rushed to the hospital and is now on life support. i feel TERRIBLE for kids who have careless parents like this. tears literally came to my eyes when i heard this story :(

  • Where i live u have to have a fence around the pool- its the law. Maybe they will be more careful, they had to live threw this- maybe they will take better care of the others now.

  • If I knew it was going to be this disturbing I wouldn't have looked. Hearing about this kind of stuff keeps me awake at night. I can't sleep because I worry so much. I worry I'll make a mistake like some of these other parents have. I worry so much I want to throw up.

    I hope this is a wake up call to them and I hope their story helps others to wake up as well.

  • I am gonna have to say if they didn't care they wouldnt have taken him to the hosp and def wouldnt have found him in time if that were so...he would have just stayed in the pool for hours if they didn't care because they wouldnt have noticed him gone.
