A child safety expert told Fox 25 that the death of young children was “heartbreaking” and urged parents to remember the steps they can take to keep their families safe.

OU Health Trauma Injury Prevention Coordinator Laura Gamino said: ‘I just want to send the family my sincere condolences.

‘From Safe Kids Oklahoma City Metro and Oklahoma Children’s Hospital, (we are) very, very sorry to hear this. It’s just tragic.

‘Anything can happen in an instant… Children are drawn to water and young children will not have the skills to help themselves out of the water… Drowning is very sudden and very quiet.

“Sometimes people have the idea that a child will have problems in the water and will scream, but they can’t because they have a mouth full of water. So it’s very quiet, and that’s one of the scariest things.

She recommended that anyone with a pool install a four-foot-high fence around it with a gate that small children cannot open.
