    How sad!!! There was NO excuse for this tragic event! A woman her age (93) should have been wearing an
    ADULT LIFE SAVER VEST: ALL of them. Thats a no brainer! Were the Caretakers also in bathing suits and able to swim. Could they speak English and understand her call for HELP! I would sue the Agency and the Care-taker. This woman was someone’s Daughter, sSster, Spouse, Mother, Aunt, Friend. People need to beheld Accountable. I am so sorry for this family’s loss.

    It saddens me that more people have not responded to this Article. This Woman could be YOU one day!
    Doesn’t anyone have a reaction/response to this very tragic event? Maybe it needs more public exposure
