6-Year-Old Iowa Child Drowns at Public Pool
Every summer, we're reminded of just how dangerous places like waterparks and public pools can be for small children.
Sadly, a six-year-old boy from central Iowa has passed away after drowning in a community pool this past weekend.
According to KCRG, Kadyn Sporrer died after being pulled from the pool at Glidden Aquatic Center in Glidden, Iowa. Despite CPR efforts by first responders, Kadyn was unable to be revived.
Kadyn had just completed Kindergarten at Fairview Elementary School in the Glidden area.
The Glidden Aquatic Center was closed Monday but reopened Tuesday afternoon. They plan to close again on Friday to pay respect to Kadyn's family, who is holding the boy's funeral that day.
