Our community is currently experiencing the loss of a young child who drowned in our community pool over the weekend. I just wanted to make a few posts on here to remind parents that drownings occur very quickly and often silently. Please be sure you or a responsible adult is with your children when they are swimming in a pool, the ocean, a lake, pond, stream or river. It only takes a second and a parent's watchful eye can only help.
My thoughts and prayers of course are with the family, the lifeguards, our city and the emergency officials who assisted that day. Such a tragedy.
