Who is 5 Years Old Boy And Women

Carl Crawford’s house became the site of a double drowning on Saturday when a woman and a child he was watching landed in his pool … TMZ found out. Sources connected with Carl tell us … the former MLB star and current record label boss arranged a small gathering of 6 people at his north Houston home. Guests included a woman and a young child, no older than 5 years, in their care during the day. We are told that at one point while Carl was inside, the boy walked away and fell into the back pool. The woman entered after him, but none could safely exit the pool. Our sources say that Carl tried to revive them as best he could on the spot, but was unsuccessful. The paramedics came and tried life-saving measures themselves but to no avail. They tell us that they are both dead.

The woman and boy were both unresponsive when taken by ambulance, per KHOU 11 … which also captured some on-the-scene footage that appears to show Crawford talking to cops. For the record, gatherings of 10 or less are currently allowed in Houston under the stay-at-home order.

A 5-year-old boy and the 25-year-old woman who tried to save him died Saturday after drowning in the backyard pool of Carl Crawford’s home in Houston.

Crawford, 38, was hosting a six-person gathering Saturday afternoon in North Houston when the boy walked away and fell into the pool, sources told TMZ. The boy began to have trouble breathing and the 25-year-old woman jumped up to try to save him, according to the Houston Chronicle. Both the boy and the woman did not respond when authorities arrived at the scene around 2:40 p.m., the outlet reported. They were rushed to Hermann Greater Heights Memorial Hospital, where they were later pronounced dead, according to the newspaper.

Police Report

Police responded to the home of the retired baseball player around 2:40 p.m. Saturday after calls about drowning, according to the Houston Chronicle. Houston police spokeswoman Jodi Silva told the newspaper that the boy had been swimming in the pool when he started struggling to breathe. The woman jumped to help, but was unable to save the child. She also drowned. Both were transported to the Hermann Greater Heights Memorial Hospital and pronounced dead, Silva told the Chronicle. It is unclear whether the two were related or their connection to Crawford. Neither has been publicly identified. Crawford, 38, retired in 2016 after a 15-year career with the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers.
