thissss mannnn I feel so bad for the homeowners.

Especially if they don't have kids of their own. Of course the pool wouldn't be child proof if they don't have any children.

This will probably stick with them for life.

Very sad situation. Those poor babies man.

That's why I righteously don't like watching kids under 4. Sometimes parents will be so eager for you to watch their kids, especially for free, they don't even take the necessary precautions to make sure their own kids are safe. How do two two year olds unlock a door and wander off out of a house? 

I'm side eyeing the whole story. The gma and the parents.

It's possible.  When my cousin was 2 he unlocked our apartment door one day and went wandering the streets.  Came back like not a damned thing happened.Ermm  "Where were you?  Outside.  Little negro you ain't SUPPOSED to be outside."
 
Needless to say, we watched his little behind like a hawk from then on.

Yes.  I don't like how most of the "what they should have done" seems to be placed on the homeowners.

Dead I can't, my 3 year old cousin was unlocking doors, but not at two. 

It's completely unfair that any form of blame be placed on the home owners, I don't feel like it's my job to pay for additional ANYTHING to baby proof my house when I dont have babies. 
I wonder if the parents will attempt to sue the homeowners....

LOLThat boy was crazy.  And smart.  And big for his age.  This was a long time ago but it's still funny and scary to me at the same time.  I was a kid myself.
 
Yeah.  I believe the bold too.  But the homeowners will probably be held more liable than the family unfortunately.
 
Everyone in this situation must be devastated.  This is such a sad story.Cry

Its extremely sad loss for the family.  I really don't see the point in blaming anyone for this.  I can only imagine the Grandmother is probably prone to taking naps every 30 minutes.  I have a grandmother and when I was young, she used to take naps on the hour and because of this reason, i could never imagine leaving a child under 12 years old with anyone of my grandmothers age (55 and up).
As for the homeowners, they shouldn't be at fault for the babies unless the yard wasn't properly secured from outside intrusion (ex. a fense around the property was down).   If a neighbor have a pool or Jacuzzi tub and plan on using it that day, how can they be at fault for it being uncovered or not properly covered?

Not everyone has kids, but I'm sure most of us live in neighborhoods with lowered speed limits. You're expected to oblige whether you have children or not, it's a precautionary measure.

Same with homeowners. There is a level of responsibility you have as a homeowner to comply with city standards. There are regulations in place for specific reasons.

Say the babies were able to access the pool on their own. The fact that the neighbors, neighbor-firefighter, onlookers etc were able to see what was inside the pool from their yard is telling of how secure the pool was...what barricade is there to separate your pool from the neighborhood? Is the community pool in your front yard?

Of course the children should've been supervised, that would've prevented all of this from happening. But as a homeowner, if your home isn't compliant and an accident like this happens you will automatically be involved and the safety of your house will be questioned. If your bases are covered then you have nothing to worry about.

Sad situation but when you have kids can't leave every time you have something to do.
