A 5-year-old boy and a woman drowned Saturday in the backyard pool of a Houston home that reportedly belongs to former Dodger Carl Crawford.
Houston police were called at about 2:40 p.m. last Saturday for a reported drowning at a north Houston home that property and business records list as belonging to Crawford, The Houston Chronicle reported.
Police spokeswoman Jodi Silva told the paper that the boy was swimming in the pool when he began to have trouble breathing, and the woman jumped in to save him.
Both were unresponsive when police arrived and later declared dead at a hospital, Silva said.
Now we’re finally hearing a statement from Crawford about the drowning.
