“Mummy, What If I Die”, Four Years Old Boy Asks Before Swimming Lesson Where He Eventually Died


Israel ‘Izzy’ Scott, A four-year-old boy who expressed his fear of drowning ended up drowning during his swimming lesson in Augusta, Georgia, U.S.

Israel ‘Izzy’ Scott had asked, “what if I drown” before his second swimming lesson which ended with his death, his devastated mother said.

The youngster was taking a beginner’s swim class recently when he died.

“I cried and screamed all the way up there and when I got there, my son was on the side of the pool while they were administering CPR. He was unresponsive,” she said.

“I could tell by looking at him that he had been under the water for some time because he was foaming at the mouth and had no heartbeat.

“I asked the swimming instructor what happened and all she could tell me was she didn’t know. She said, ‘I don’t know. I told the kids to get out of the pool. I don’t know.’”

Dori said she stood at the pool screaming, “Let me hold my baby!” but she was not allowed because he was receiving CPR and chest compressions.

Israel was rushed to Burke Medical Center and then Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

“They finally got a heartbeat but once they did a CT scan he was already brain dead. He’d been under (water) too long,” Dori said.

“He passed in the early hours of June 15, 2022. I never received an apology.”

The swim instructor, Lexie TenHuisen, whom Dori found on Facebook, and has nearly 50 years of experience, said she made sure all the kids were out of the pool before she got out of the water.

Last month, the Burke County Sheriff’s Office said there was not sufficient evidence to prosecute the swim instructor.
