    Bully told us that an Italian tourist drowned at Baby Beach last Thursday. What a terrible tragedy.

    Are there warning signs not to go out near or past the opening into open ocean?

    Life Jacket

    I could see how at baby beach,After you get out past the elk horn coral it gets a little choppy out there.I had some water in my snorkel.I think the biggest thing is most people have very little experience and are poor swimmers.If you are, put on a life jacket.My thoughts go out to the families.God Bless

    Any loss, regardless of age or circumstances, is sad......but an 8 year old at a pool? Horrific.

    how very sad, a kid drowning in a resort pool
    honestly though, i am surprised it has not happened more often :-(

    on a few aruba trips i have plucked a kid out of a pool that has gotten into "trouble" (usually a child...usually an unattended child) from a pool or the beach.
    thankfully all conscious.
    once 2 kids, siblings on 2 different days.
    i was overwhelmed with the urge to hurt the parents.

    i always blame PARENTS and their laziness or ignorance or both.

    at caribbean palm village 2 days before christmas i plucked a kid from 5' of water and plopped him down in front of his parents who were SITTING in the shade playing with their ipads. i said, your kids was in the deep end in trouble, here he is safe and sound! their reaction was "we are never coming back to aruba again" huh??

    Exclamation Please Be Careful Swimming In Aruba

    Young soccer player drowns in Aruba waters
    "A young soccer player from Aruba that plays for the RCA team drowned on Tuesday. This took place in the rough waters behind the Lighthouse. The victim was spear fishing together with a friend when he could not handle the rough waters. It was very difficult to retrieve his body as the sea was extremely rough. It is not advised for people to swim and/or be in the waters of this area of the island."
