    2 year old twin girls drown in family pool

    Such a tragedy:

    LYNNFIELD, Mass. -- Authorities say twin toddler girls are dead after they drowned in the family swimming pool in Massachusetts.


    Essex District Attorney spokeswoman Carrie Kimball Monahan said police were called to the home in Lynnfield, about 17 miles north of Boston, at about 10:20 a.m. Saturday after a report of "babies in the pool."


    Monahan said firefighters gave CPR to 2-year-old Angelina and Veronica Andreottola before they were taken to Union Hospital in Lynn, where they were pronounced dead.


    She said the girl's mother, Crystal Andreottola, was home at the time of the accident.

    If I had a large pool when my children were small, it would have been my greatest fear that they would slip out of the house and end up in the pool. A few years back I saw an advertisement for an alarm system. Anything, even as light as a leaf, that went into the pool an alarm would sound.

    Such a tragedy about these little girls. Hopefully, it's a warning for other parents with small children and a pool.

    How sad

    In the article it said there were security cameras on the property and they think that will help them understand just how this happened. The parents also have a 9 month old baby. With 3 very young children I can see how a mother could get distracted and it only takes seconds for something terrible to happen.

    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.

    I guess I was just trying to say that it seems as if they took every precaution and spared no expense for their kids' safety around the pool...and whoever manufactured the button is going to need to put a safety cover on it asap. =(

    That poor family. I am sending lots of prayers for them.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    All my love to this family. Both of my boys are finally great swimmers...and it STILL frightens me for them to be around water.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!
