I wonder if the parents will attempt to sue the homeowners....

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
 


The homeowners are liable if they didn't have the pool secured in some fashion.  Many areas have specific laws that require pool owners to have fences and/or some type of restricted access because pools are kid magnets plain and simple.  Drownings are in the top 5 causes of deaths for kids. 

It looks like a tragic event that was a result of many lapses of judgement for all the adults involved.  Maybe the back door was left unlocked...maybe grandma had a cold and took some cough meds that made her drowsy....maybe the pool owners left the gate open...its so sad that those kids died.

I know the homeowners are liable if they didn't have what is deemed proper security.  Even if they did have security they can still be liable.  That's why in my post I said: But the homeowners will probably be held more liable than the family unfortunately.
 
It's the way things work.  I just don't think it's alway fair.  It's just tragic that those two little girls had to die that way.Cry

They had a pool cover, which is all Indiana requires if they didn't have a fence.  From the article, it seems like they'll investigate whether the pool cover met all the requirements set up by the state.  It'd suck if the home owners were still held liable if they were following all the required safety protocols.

It's very sad that this happened. All children "explore".  I've watched my daughter when she was about 3yrs old unlock the door. So I added a lock with the chain.  Well that didn't stop her, she placed a chair up against the door and unlatched that too one evening. After I whipped her azz, I went and got a deadbolt lock which needed a key for inside and out.  But that was a fire hazard.  My point is this is one of them sad, "freak accidents".  I don't believe the homeowners should be blamed or held accountable.  And gma probably watched those babies every day since they were born.

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.
 
What if the homeowners were cleaning their pool to get it ready for use and they had to lift the cover off, would you still believe they should be held liable?
