I hope the young boy is OK. This goes directly at what I have been saying about how so many parents cut their kids loose when they board the ships. So many parents think the ship is a playground and think the crew are responsible for babysitting their kids. Where were the parents while this 4 year old child was even NEAR the pool???

God so sorry to hear this. It's impossible to say who's at fault as we don't have the facts. Kids can stay down for a surprising amt. of time and recover though this is more prevalent in cold water which I don't think is the case here. My prayers are with them.

This is deffinately sad to hear. I hope the child recovers with no further problems.

Very sad – hope he’s okay.  Obviously we don’t know what happened in this case but, like Tim said, many times we see parents who are completely on vacation from their parenting responsibilities and oblivious to what their kids are doing.

What an awful way for the family to begin their vacation.  I hope the little boy's okay.
