A 3-year-old boy drowned over the weekend at a swim school in San Antonio after his parents left him at the school during its “date night” program, according to a report from San Antonio Hatch.
The report states that the child, Mitchell Chang, was found underwater in the deep end of the Love to Swim School’s pool, and CPR was performed before he was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police called the death a “tragic accident” and will not file charges. Hatch also included a statement from Love to Swim School.
“The Love to Swim School ownership, staff and families are devastated by the accident that occurred during Date Night Open Swim at our Stone Oak facility on Saturday evening, February 10, 2018. All our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Our hearts are heavy with grief. We will use all information gathered by the San Antonio Police Department, and our internal review, to make sure nothing like this can ever happen again. Teaching children to be safer in the water is the reason we exist and our ongoing mission. We will issue a further statement as our investigation yields.”
