My Little Girl.My Name is Marissa Johnson,I Am 27 years old,and My Daughter Drowned in the Pool Behind our house.It was last year, in june.She was 6 years old.I Was in my bedroom, talking on the Phone with my Husband.We had been haveing fights and where planning a Divorce.My Daughter,Emily,Had no one to play With, So i guess she went to play by herself.It all Happend so fast.i heard her shout "Mum!" then a splash. I Shot twords the back door. there was no other way to the pool. But it..it was locked. I Could See her..Thrashing.. calling for me everytime she surfaced. i was trying to smash the glass.To get to her.i tried..so hard.i could see her waveing arms and kicking legs slowing.fianlly i just grabbed a chair and smashed the glass in. i jumped straight into the pool and dragged her out..But i was too late. I Tried CPR.but em was gone.I Looked over the Security Cams a week after and it all made sense. Em fell in reaching for the Beachball,In the middle of the pool.. Its all my falt... if i had gotton there sooner.. maby..Or-or if i hadent installed that stupid Lock...If i had just delt with the vandlizers...if- if i had been just a bit faster...Em would...she would be..
