Nothing is more painful than seeing your child die a very young age. Plus the thought that you could have prevented the incident is an agony that’s so hard to endure.

Imagine the pain of the mother of a 9-year-old boy who was drowned at the Bottomless Lakes State Park at Roswell, New Mexico on July 7. The boy was identified as Kingdom Ferdinand Cobol, who was already 10 minutes underwater when he was found.

Though a nurse was able to perform CPR on the victim and emergency responders did the same thing until they reached the hospital, they failed to save the boy who was declared brain dead by doctors.

According to reports, her parents went out of the water but Kingdom went back in and he does not know how to swim.

Later on, his father began looking for his child after failing to spot him in shallow water.

Kingdom, as well as his two brothers, just recently went a month ago to New Mexico to be with their mother, Mary An Cobol who works as a teacher in Hobbs since August last year. She hoped to be with her children as well as her husband in New Mexico for the next three years until the unfortunate event happened.

Condolences to the bereaved family for their lost.
