3-Year-Old Dies in Apartment Swimming Pool
In Fort Worth, Texas, it is reported that a young 3-year-old was found drowning in the pool of the family’s apartment building. According to the family, Marcus White was near the water while his mom and siblings were swimming in their apartment pools last Saturday night. According to the local police reports, the mother went to go back inside the apartment building with another child and asked her friend to keep an eye on the baby to make sure he didn’t get into the water. At some point, while the mother was away the little baby Marcus got into the water and was reported dead at the hospital later that night.
When the emergency services arrived at the scene they attempted to resuscitate him, but Marcus remained unconscious until he died later that night. While it is left unmentioned as to how the child ended up in the water, it is said that there will be no charges made towards the person who was in charge of watching the child. Losing a loved one due to a drowning accident can be a difficult situation to go through. When around a body of water it is important to take extra precautions for their safety. Consider giving the young ones special floating devices even when there is no intention of actually letting them into the pool. Also, it is never too young to teach children how to swim.
It is an investment that could save their lives and possibly even others. Children tend to love the water starting at a young age so spend time with them to teach them how or enroll them into lessons. If there is an unfortunate circumstance of having to experience the loss of a loved one, and perhaps it is due to the neglect of another person or place, this could be considered premise liability in which there should have been a lifeguard or supervisor, etc. The possibilities are endless, so contact the Lanier Law Group today for any questions you might have regarding personal injury or death, we want to help you!
