This tragic death is a good word of warning to be very careful around water no matter your age. According to the CDC, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children between the ages of 1 and 4. Already this summer we've seen the devastating death of Granger Smith's 3-year-old son, River.
Please use a lot of extra caution with your kids and with yourself. Of course, water and alcohol are never a good mix.
