Just a dad being a dad ๐Ÿ‘‡

Zachary Petite took all the proper precautions and his back was only turned for a few moments, but that brief moment is all it took. The Hemet Firefighters Association in SoCal had this to say:

The association said that the father is Zachary Petite, a fire engineer and paramedic at Hemet Fire Department and Cole is his youngest son.

'This video is a sobering reminder that a child drowning can happen to anyone at anytime in a matter of seconds,' the Hemet Firefighters Association said on Facebook.

'Even though both parents took all proper precautions including a gate around the pool and an appropriate PFD [Personal Flotation Device], the boy still managed to get in the water.'

'Remember, children drown without a sound, please watch the video,' the association added.

Remember, seconds matter. Dads and moms, keep your heads on a swivel!
