TODDLER IS 1ST TO DROWN IN PHOENIX POOL IN 2000

January 28, 2000

An 18-month-old boy who toddled through an open gate Thursday afternoon became the city's first drowning victim of 2000.

Fire officials said David Michael Busch fell into the pool about 2 p.m. while his mother, who is hearing-impaired, was doing chores in the home in the 5400 block of West Edgemont Avenue.

Nine children died in Phoenix area pools last year.
