Typical derelict welfare recipients who congregate at the leeward coast. A shame to allow everybody to have babies.

I think you may be right. That is where the waves are. Still unattended and parents that are irresponsible.

Find the parents, arrest them, and charge them with child endangerment at the very least!

Parents going say, "But, they were right by me, and I turned away a few seconds, they were gone." How fast can 2-year-olds run in sand?

Pray that the children will get better. Sad, but sadder that people would put down a whole community for the fault that belongs to a few. I'm sure the parents are torturing themselves right now, sitting over their children in the hospital going over the should haves and could haves. What matters is the children healing and those responsible not ever letting it happen again. The sad part is that it will on another beach, in a backyard pool or in a bathroom tub. These things are not discriminate and limited to economically depressed areas, but it could happen in your own neighborhood. Don't chastise, educate.
