A walk ends badly…

I spent another wonderful weekend with my Love in Woodbridge.

Earlier today, we went for a walk at Lodi Lake Park, where we usually ride our bikes.

Lodi Lake

We walked past the lake, and walked the loop through the nature preserve.

It was pretty warm, but we saw the deer and squirrels galore.

He is my heart.

On our way back, past the playground, there were many people along the lake side, and right when we passed, not 10 feet from us, a man pulled a limp, maybe 2yo, boy from the water.

I think the sight will haunt me for a long time. It was truly awful.

Matt and I both called 911, but Matt’s call was better as he has a local number (I still use my old Fresno number). Emergency dispatch had him stand right next to the baby, as folks were performing CPR so that his location could be tracked.

Emergency vehicles arrived and took the baby right away in the ambulance.

After we got home, Matt found an online news article, stating that the baby boy had died.

I am bereft.
