This is heart breaking news, my condolences to the family and friends. If there is any donation fund created in the child or family's name please post.

The Chron added that video showed the girl was not long underwater, and that the lifeguard did a good job of responding and was the one who was able to recover a pulse via CPR. They should not hang their head. Well done in the face of tragedy.

Very sad. There is no greater pain than the loss of a child.

With the video the news was swift and accurate about what happened. In this case we learned what happened the very next day.

In comparison to the drowning at SRV high school (May 8th). Even with video the school district has yet to disclose the fact that the drowning occurred during a PE class. It was only when the police report (July 5th 2 months later) came out did we learn that the evil rumors that were allowed to swirl were not accurate. Yet the video recorded the drowning and was reviewed the day the student died. Do school districts (SRVUSD) get to withhold information if it makes them look bad?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
