Tampa Bay area mother shares story of son’s near drowning experience

(WFLA) – Florida loses more children under the age of five to drowning than any other state.

In July, 18-month-old Braxtynn escaped his play area and was found moments later by a family friend face-down in the pool.

Jenn Holloway has more on his mother’s firsthand story of her son’s near death experience in the video above.
