Idaho Toddler Wanders Away From Daycare, Drowns in Canal

Posted By on Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 10:29 AM

An eastern Idaho mother is sharing her particular heartache with the public in the shadow of the drowning death of her toddler in a canal Oct. 18.

KIFI-TV reports that neighbors found the body of a 19-month old toddler in a canal shortly after the child went missing from a daycare on East Iona Road in Idaho Falls. CPR was performed on the scene, but the child was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. The Bonneville County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the case.

"Don't ever leave your kids outside," Sky Duncan, the child's mother, told KIFI-TV. "The water is always deeper than it looks, and it's always faster."

Meanwhile, friends of the family have set up an online donation drive to assist the grieving family.
