Utterly tragic. I have a six year old son myself and that just wouldn't bear thinking about. Whenever I take him swimming I am with him all the time, you simply cannot trust even pool lifeguards here to be able to swim themselves.

What pisses me off no end are the apparently new generation of parents who have some 20 year old nanny looking after their kids and believing they'll have the same level of diligence as themselves so they can "go and party" - those 20 year old nannies as we know (a) can't swim, and (b) would be engrossed in Facebook anyway. How can anyone leave their kids in water here without proper adult supervision is beyond me.

You're a damn parent, partying is FOR the six year olds at a water park - not at their expense, in this case a poor lad robbed of his life too soon. RIP.

The parents killed their child by their negligent behaviour.
Anyone with even an ounce if common sense would know that they and they alone are responsible for their childs welfare at any "play area/park/water park" in this country.
