Danish Toddler Drowns

SPN Pool DeathA Danish toddler drowned in a private pool on a rented rural property in Llucmajor, Mallorca on the last day of July.

The parents found the child’s body in the pool at 08.15h, according to the Guardia Civil press release.

Facts point to the probabililty that the 2-year-old child woke up before his parents and wandered out to the garden where the pool is.

The family was part of a larger group of nine who had rented the house between them. Six of this group were minors.

Editorial note: you cannot repeat enough that pools, or any body of water, are very, very dangerous and it only takes a couple of minutes for one to kill a toddler – the two minutes that you were distracted by a phone call or somebody at the door. Kids are not safe by themselves, not even ones older – even a 10-year-old who swims like a fish can bang his head jumping in and drown.
