Dry drowning may have claimed child's life

London Bridge attacker tried to rent larger truck

A Texas 4-year-old drown almost a week after the last time he went swimming, and now his parents are trying to prevent other children from suffering the same fate.

A four-year-old child in Texas died on June 3, a few days after his family's latest swimming trip. Frankie seemed to get better until Saturday morning when he complained about his shoulders hurting.

"They're trying to breathe against those closed vocal cords, which can lead to inflammation, swelling, and fluid in the lungs", he explained.

Unlike more typical drowning deaths that happened in pools, lakes and at the beach, dry drowning can occur hours, even days, after a person inhales water.

The symptoms of both dry and secondary drowning include coughing, chest pain, trouble breathing and feeling exhausted. These symptoms closely mimic other childhood illnesses which is why medical professionals urge parents to have their child seen by a physician for any near-drowning experience or if any symptoms of secondary drowning are present after a child has been in the water.

While both types of cases are very rare, it's critical for parents to keep an eye out for symptoms and respond quickly.

Secondary drowning usually develops within 24 hours, but sometimes much longer, as with Frankie. "He was loved by so many people ... the world lost a lovely soul".

Funeral services are scheduled for Saturday, May 10.

"Heartbreaking. My sympathy for the family, they are living a parent's worst nightmare", one Mad World News reader commented on the site's Facebook page.
