The first drowning was on June 19 when a 14-year-old boy drowned after jumping off a bridge in Albion. The second is still being called a "possible drowning." A ten-month-old boy was found not breathing in the wading pool behind his home in Lansing Township. The third drowning happened Monday night in the Michigan Center Lake in Jackson County.
Although, local lifeguards do not believe the recent drownings are anything out of the ordinary, they do say it is a lot right in a row. They urge parents to always keep a close eye on children playing near water. It can only take seconds for a child to drown.
