Very sad. I am sure the suspicious minds will conjure up all sorts of images, but she probably just fell in to the pond. Poor kid.

Tragic. But more times than not...avoidable.

Be vigilant parents! Not complacent!

Spidey, this is true but you can't watch them 100% of the time. Children can be very fast and these things can happen in a frighteningly short space of time....My sympathy to the parents.

This ponds should be drained to avoid any further consumption. It probably has evil spirts.

So sad! Kids will be kids. Let's hope it is just a tragic accident and not the result of a sinister deed.

It probably was an accident(i hope) but how can a mother let the kid play near a pond, kids are impulsive!

When I became a father 7 years ago, stories like this suddenly grabbed my attention and stabbed at that core of my soul. My deepest sympathies go out to the parents. I would cease to function as a normal human being if something like this ever happened to my cherished child.

That's why good parents always keep an eye on their kids, and give them STRICT instructions not to go out of sight or earshot, and ENFORCE these instructions.
