A child, someone’s daughter, has died. This is indeed a personal tragedy.
We are told that the ‘family are angry, angry and hurt’
We are also told that lifeguards were chatting whilst girl drowned
We are also informed that ‘a full and thorough’ investigation would be carried out.
We were not told why a FIVE-year old child was allowed to go into a swimming pool area unsupervised by her ‘devastated parents or grandparents’.
Just in the course of ‘full disclosure’!
In the course of full disclosure, I might add that two of my grandsons are already learning to swim, and the third is being introduced to the water. All three of my grandchildren, whenever near the water, are supervised as if they were about to disappear, and I would expect nothing less from their fathers, my two sons. Also to be disclosed is the sad truth that their Grandad cannot swim a stroke, and is terrified of the water.
