    OMG, I feel sick about this. F&*^ked up stuff like this SHOULD NOT happen.
    Can you imagine them finding the stroller only to find it empty. A 2 year old can not swim. I doubt they will find him alive, but I hope.

    This is one of the most tragic stories I have heard. That poor mother. I am sure that she is wracked with guilt for not holding on to that stroller -- although there was nothing she could have done. And then there is the teenager who likely drowned while trying to help.

    This is one of those stories that reminds you how tragedy can enter our lives so suddenly and unexpectedly. We must appreciate every minute we have on this earth.

    My wishes for the victims' families.

    I think that I have found her myspace and if it is her it is very eerie. She has so many pictures of a river or creek. There are several pictures of a toddler sitting with his feet in the water. In her about me section she says that she likes long walks in the rain.

    I wonder if that is her page Shadow. I think if it is it could definitely be misconstrued by some.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    Jose's body has been recovered

    Rescuers have recovered the body of two-year-old Jose-Matthew Jauregui Jr., who was swept away from his mother during a flash flood Monday night. Firefighters found the body in the South Platte River near the Franklin Street bridge, north of the National Western Stock Show complex and west of the Riverside Cemetary, on the Denver/Adams county line. The location is about 3 miles from the point where the boy was washed into the river.

    RIP little Jose. Poor little guy. I can not imagine how scared he must have been in his last moments. His poor mother. The whole story just makes me physically ill.

    i live in a town locals call river city. the st johns river runs through it and we are on the coast. when you live this close to water everything in town centers around it. i am sure her love of water and the joy she got from walking in the rain are greatly adding to her grief.

    I can only pray that he wnt quickly. Thinking of that poor mother wanting to die after she found out that her baby likely didn't survive is so heartbreaking. God bless her and the family.
    Happy New Years

    Hum.
    Let me just verbalize what I am sure other people have wondered to.
    I don't know if it is the case or not.

    But don't you think it is a little creepy that has an obvious - fascination? maybe? with water. She is out in a storm with her baby. And he drowns. Could it have been on purpose?

    I wonder if LE has seen the myspace.
