Two Young Children Drown In Swimming Pool Along With Their Teen Babysitter — And Authorities Have No Clue How It Happened

This is so unimaginably sad.

Two young sisters and their 17-year-old babysitter all died Monday afternoon in Pueblo, Colorado, after apparently drowning in a swimming pool with no lifeguard on scene.

The sisters, who were three and five years old, according to authorities, were being watched by the 17-year-old when, at some point, all three became incapacitated in the swimming pool and drowned.

The incident took place at the Pueblo Grande Village mobile home park just north of the center of Pueblo, a small town in southern Colorado.

Police responded at about 2:10 p.m. local time yesterday afternoon and attempted to perform CPR on the girls, but by the time they arrived, it was too late for all three victims.

Police are still investigating the incident, but they do not suspect any foul play is involved — and they have not yet released the names of those deceased.

Pueblo Police Captain Joe Garcia summed it all up in a statement:

“I think it’s just a horrible tragedy.”

Police do believe there were witnesses, as other people were at the pool during the tme of the incident. One woman named Marianna Lefebre, who was at the pool on Monday before the drowning occurred, spoke to reporters:

“It’s just shocking because you never think it can happen at places you’re, like, so used to because it’s so safe, you think, but just it’s crazy.”


It is unclear at this point why all three drowned, how something like this could happen, or even in what order they died. Really, the cops are seeking anything to shed light on why this tragedy occurred in the first place.

In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and loved ones of the three girls.

What a tragic, scary situation.
