Drowning Accident in Tyler County Claims Life of Three-Year-Old

A drowning accident in Tyler, Texas claimed the life of a young child when he slipped into a water filled hole in the backyard of a home on CR 1325, officials said Wednesday.

The child, whose name was not revealed by authorities, was identified as a three-year-old boy.

According to police reports the boy was outside with family members when they went inside, returning outside to find him gone. The hole where the drowning accident occurred was approximately five feet deep, officials revealed.

Family members rushed the boy to meet with emergency officials at a nearby store. A store clerk attempted to perform CPR on the young boy. He was pronounced dead there at the store after first responders continued to attempt to revive him.

Drowning accidents can be horrific for family members and loved ones dealing with the loss of the victim, especially a child. The guilt associated with a drowning accident can be overwhelming, specifically for caregivers and family members who look for answers and blame themselves for such a tragedy.

While there may be many factors involved in a death by drowning, some instances are completely preventable, tied to pools, septic tanks and other sources of water that aren’t maintained or secured. Children can be especially susceptible to drowning when water sources are not secured or maintained in order to protect them.
