Toddler Drowns in Church Baptismal Pool

A church's nightmare:
A 1-year-old boy is dead after he drowned in an Indianapolis church’s baptismal pool Wednesday.

Indianapolis police said the boy — identified as Juan Cardenas in several reports — went missing for a short period, presumably having wandered off from the supervision of childcare staff members at the Praise Fellowship Assembly of God. There, eight employees monitor between 30 and 45 children.

The child wasn’t discovered missing until his therapist arrived for a session and couldn’t find him. The daycare employees then found him floating in two-feet of water in the pool. He was transported in critical condition to St. Vincent’s Hospital where he was later declared dead.
Whatever the church's liability limits are, they're going to use all of it...and probably then some.
