a little boy nearly drowned on Fantasy

#1
a 4-year old kid nearly drowned at one of the onboard swimming pools - this Disney Fantasy cruise incident happened while the ship was in port and about to set sail on a 7-night Caribbean itinerary from Port Canaveral

Details aren't available yet but I read that the parents weren't in the pool with him at the time. No word on his condition. Signs are prominently posted that there are no lifeguards.

I have never been a lifeguard but I have saved several people from drowning. I was taught from a very young age you do not let kids in a pool or lake without supervision, because it only takes seconds for something to go wrong. I hope the best for this child.

hi Pam, i read many of your comments, and i really enjoy it. so it is a pleasure for me to reply your comment. i agree with you about no lifeguards, and less crew member around the pool because some of them have off day in the port.

Thanks. :) FYI, it was embarkation day and the ship hasn't sailed yet.

I saw a report last night that the child is still in the hospital. No details due to family privacy. So sad. :( We can talk about parental responsibility but an active toddler can move faster than a speeding bullet if you take your eyes off them for a second. :(
