Inspector: Pool where 2-year-old drowned lacked safety measures
The above-ground pool in Brockton where a 2-year-old girl drowned lacked required safety measures designed to prevent such tragedies, a city inspector determined Monday. Neighbors worked feverishly Sunday evening to save Yandeliz del Carmen Claudio after she went into a pool behind 84 S. Leyden St. But their rescue efforts proved futile: The child was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Multiple law enforcement and child welfare agencies are investigating the toddler’s death.
