Child Drowns in Stockton Pool

I’m Ed Smith, a Stockton personal injury lawyer. Each year, thousands of adults die or receive serious injuries in swimming accidents. Over 1,000 children die each year because of swimming-related tragedies. It only takes a couple of minutes and less than two inches of water for a child to drown. Sadly, a young child lost his life in a Stockton neighborhood on Friday, April 8, 2016.

What Happened?

A 5-year-old boy drowned in a swimming pool at a neighbor’s house in Stockton, police officers said.

Tragically, the boy was discovered in the swimming pool at approximately 10:30 a.m. The location of the neighbor’s pool was on Diana Maria Drive. Stockton police said the young boy was transported to an area hospital where he later died.

The parents of the child are trying to determine how the boy got into the neighbor’s backyard and into the swimming pool. No foul play has been indicated. No additional information has been released.
