The other three children were pulled from swimming pools in the past 12 days; four children, two boys and two girls.
And all of them were two years old or younger.

“We’ve had other seasons that have started earlier, but this is bad, not where we’ve had fatal incidents right from the get go,” said Drexel Heights Fire District spokesperson Tracy Koslowski. “That’s the difference I’m seeing this year.”
