Springfield mom says daughter almost drowns at YMCA
A Springfield mom says her daughter almost drowned under the supposed watchful eye of a swim instructor. It happened at the Pat Jones YMCA at the beginning of the summer.
We caught up with the Waltons taking an early weekend at Table Rock Lake as they've been doing for many years, but recently a scary incident almost made the water a scary prospect.
Five-year-old Cambelle and four-year-old Channing don't have much choice in the matter-- "Channing was down here six days out of the hospital"-- they're water babies and the water was always a pretty good place to be until their first swim lesson at the YMCA.
"When you sign your kids up for a class that's supposed to be teach them how to be safe around the water you assume that the instructors are also trained in how to keep the kids safe but apparently that was not the case," explains Mom Carly Walton.
