‘Quickly and quietly’

“Somewhere between 30 seconds and 3 minutes, Amber and I are inside our pool gate doing CPR on our son.” — Granger Smith

“I think a lot of parents feel like it’s not going to happen to them.” — Morgan Miller

“It is silent and it happens FAST.” — Misty Vento

“We believe we lost sight of him for 30 seconds, maybe 1 minute.”
