If I let someone watch my kids and this happened I don't even want to think about what I would do.

Twin toddler girls drown days after parents marry






AURORA, IND. — Twin toddlers died shortly after they were pulled from a neighbor's pool near here, according to the Dearborn County Sheriff's office.

The bodies of Shaylyn and Jocelyn Spurlock, 2, were found about 2½ hours after a 911 call came in around 6:50 p.m. ET Tuesday, Maj. Terry Van Winkle said Wednesday.

The girls apparently had wandered out of their home and climbed on top of a neighbor's covered above-ground pool two doors from their house, he said. The home in Center Township, Ind., is about 2 miles from this town of about 4,000 people on the banks of the Ohio River southwest of Cincinnati.

Emergency personnel immediately began CPR on the twins; they were transported to Dearborn County Hospital in Lawrenceburg, Ind, where they were pronounced dead.

"We are all trained to help people, but it's just devastating when we can't do it," Van Winkle said. "It affects us for a while. Our heart goes out to the families."

A neighbor and a firefighter found the girls in the water on top of a pool cover that had standing water from recent storms, Detective Sgt. John Vance told WLWT-TV, Cincinnati.

"I was in my yard with my husband," neighbor Heather Bressert told WCPO-TV, Cincinnati. "A couple of firemen and my husband noticed something in my neighbors' pool. While we were walking down there we quickly figured out what we saw was a small child."

The girls drowned by accident, according to a preliminary autopsy Wednesday from the Dearborn County Coroner's Office.

"I ran, picked one of the little girls up and brought her up to a fireman and started CPR," Bressert said. "Another fireman jumped in the pool to pick up the other little girl." The family who owned the home where the toddlers were found was out of town Tuesday.

Not all pool covers protect children from mishaps, child-safety advocates say.

Covers over pools and spas should be rigid and strong enough to hold a child who might try to walk on them. Some can be locked so only an adult can remove them. And ladders to above-ground pools also should be removed when the pools are not in use, according to the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission. A fence around the entire pool area creates a barrier. Supervision of children also is extremely important.

Dearborn County's planning and zoning director, Mark McCormack told WSCH-FM, Lawrenceburg that Indiana law and county code require a fence around any pool unless its cover meets certain specifications, including being able to support a 400-pound weight. It is unclear whether the above-ground pool's cover met those specifications or whether the yard was fenced.

The twins' parents, Brad and Breanna Spurlock, had reported the girls missing about the same time emergency crews came to the neighborhood, Van Winkle said.

A grandmother was watching the girls for about an hour while their parents picked up some recently purchased furniture but had fallen asleep, according to the mother's 911 call.

"I've been to a lot of scenes like that, and I've been to the hospital. I haven't seen that much family at the hospital in my career. They're just absolutely devastated," Detective Barry Bridges told WLWT-TV.

This is why I'm picky about who watches my daughter. It even took me a long time to trust my dad with her by himself. He hasn't been around babies in a while, but it's been 3 months and he is back in the swing of things. I often let him take her when I need a break. I totally trust my dad because he's responsible and he doesn't just fall asleep like that when he's got to watch her.

This is such a sad story, both of them dead. I wonder if the girls were sleeping and then grandma decided to take a nap too and the girls woke up and wandered off. wonder if she left doors unlocked or open and that's how they got out. feel like the little girls were curious though and would have eventually made it over to the pool if not that day, then another day.

So grandma couldn't stay awake for an hour

I would definitely feel some type of way if they were my babies.
