A three-year-old boy drowned at a waterpark in Texas, United States, while his mother was engrossed in her phone, according to police. The incident occurred at Camp Cohen water park in El Paso. Jessica Weaver, 35, was charged in connection with the tragic death of her only child, Anthony Leo Malave. Eyewitnesses held her accountable for the incident, citing her alleged reckless inattentiveness. Mrs. Weaver was apprehended in Indiana and placed in custody at the El Paso County Jail. During the incident, one of the 18 lifeguards on duty rescued the child from a four-foot-deep section of the pool. The child was not wearing a life vest, even though the facility had these devices available. Signs at Camp Cohen indicate that children under six must be actively supervised by a swimming adult. Eyewitnesses described Mrs. Weaver as being entirely absorbed in her phone, not looking up or paying attention for over an hour. Another witness mentioned that she was continuously taking photos while at the pool. Another witness saw her singing along to a song playing and reclining, engrossed in her phone, approximately seven minutes before the child was pulled out of the water.
