Via TMZ Sports:

Sources connected to Carl tell us … the ex-MLB star and current record label chief was hosting a small gathering of 6 people at his north Houston home. The guests included a woman and a young boy — no more than 5 years old — in her care for the day.

We’re told, at one point while Carl was inside, the boy wandered off and fell into his swimming pool out back. The woman went in after him, but neither were able to exit the pool safely. Our sources say Carl tried reviving them the best he could on the spot, but was unsuccessful.

Paramedics arrived and tried life-saving measures themselves, but to no avail. We’re told both have died.

What a tragedy.  Kids unfortunately sometimes move very quickly and it’s hard to keep them from doing things that will hurt them.  RIP to the two lives lost.
