Charges May be Filed Against Parent of Toddler who Drowned

The parents of a child who drowned in an Indio, CA pool could face criminal charges, reports say.

Although neither the family nor the deceased child have been identified by police yet, reports say charges are probably forthcoming, with child endangerment or child neglect charges most likely.

The incident occurred when a young girl was pulled from a swimming pool at about 5:50 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon during a family gathering at her home.

The case will be based on the results of an ongoing investigation, reports say. It was unclear whether both parents were to be possibly charges – or if both were even at the scene at the time of the tragedy.

It was also unclear whether the pool was gated, if other adults were outside when the girl slipped into the pool or even how much time passed before she was pulled from the water. What is known is that he 2-year-old was out of the pool when EMS arrived performed CPR. But she was in full cardiac arrest when paramedics took her to John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Indio, and she died at the hospital shortly later, reports say.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
