Capt Ron Taig from Livonia police told DailyMail.com that the department decided to share the graphic video on social media because they wanted to raise awareness about drowning.

Taig warned parents and guardians of young children to “be aware”.

‘Watch your children. Because of the confusion and chaos, the child gets too far away. You have to keep people close, “he added.

In the department’s Facebook post, officers also reported facts about drowning.

“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, three children die every day as a result of drowning,” the department wrote in the video caption.

“In fact, drowning kills more children from one to four years of age than anything else except birth defects.

‘Fortunately, parents can play an important role in protecting the children they love from drowning. The Livonia police want to remind you that you should always supervise children in the water, “the police said.

The police said they have completed their investigation and handed over to the public prosecutor.

The boy’s mother and aunt were at the pool when the incident occurred.

It is unclear whether charges will be filed.
