Jonesboro police: Toddler drowns in swimming pool

By The Associated Press

— Authorities say an 18-month-old girl has died after falling into her family’s swimming pool.

Jonesboro police say the drowning happened Tuesday night.

Authorities say the mother was preparing dinner when she realized her daughter, Kinley Crews, was missing. The girl was found floating in the family’s swimming pool.

The Jonesboro Sun reported that a downstairs door used to let family dogs in and out of the home may have been unsecured, allowed the girl to get to the backyard.

Police say they don’t suspect foul play and that the case is being treated as an accidental drowning.

It is no accident when you have a pool and it is supposed to have a locked gate around it to keep these kind of "accidents" from happening. If you have a pool, you need to be super vigilent re safety. Sorry for the kid who lost their life throough their parents neglect.

PISS ON BEING SENSITIVE.!! A CHILD has lost their LIFE to something that is 100% preventable! I feel bad for the parent for sure BUT I'm not going to pat them on the back and tell them it's ok and all will be fine because it's NOT. This is the kind of crap tha's turned my gut for YEARS in the emergency departments. I just hope someone reading this story will stop and think about how to their own children safe.

I agree Nonsheeple. Howgfan, people need to have responsibility nowadays. In todays world, there is no responsibility. It is ALWAYS somebody elses fault.

Now watch them sue the 'downstairs door manufacturer'. "It is not my fault". Just like our government allowing people to sue the manufacturers of guns when someone uses it in a crime. Victims Attorney says "It is not the criminals fault, If he didn't have access to guns, this would not happen. The gun manufacturers need to pay"

Amen to that edo. It's a good thing Democrat and Nonsheep have never done so much as exceed the posted speed limit, which we all know can lead to fatalities. Keep up the good work guys! Your everyday lives serve as a monument to the perfection that we all strive to achieve!

If I must be called JUDGE for pointing out that this child DIED from parental negligence then fine. Children that age aren't out opening doors or yard gates by themselves. I've seen kids drown in bath tubs from parents assuming their children will be fine at too young. Open water kills a lot more children annually then all these "assault rifles" that are in the news for sure...
