The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is investigating the apparent drowning of a toddler in his daycare provider's pool on Monday. The in-home daycare was inspected just days go.

"It's just tragic to see it happen in a quiet neighborhood or anywhere for that matter," said Phillip St. George, a neighbor.

A nightmare hit this neighborhood on Sweden Hill Road.

"It's just something no parent wants to hear or go through," said Charles Swalbach.

Swalbach lives across the street from Mary's Kid Business.

"She had assistance a lot of times and is a good neighbor," said Swalbach.

Monday afternoon, emergency responders were called to the home after investigators say a two-year-old boy, Cameron Vickers, was found at the bottom of the fenced in, above-ground pool in the back yard.

"It has an attached deck on it as well that has a gate on it," said Capt. David Inzana of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

The daycare provider, an assistant and emergency responders administered CPR to the boy, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Deputies say there were seven children of various ages in the home at the time.

"The daycare provider had several children with her. At some point, they noticed the two-year-old was missing. When they went back to check in the area, they couldn't find him. They checked the pool and they found him in the pool," said Inzana.

According to the state Office of Children and Family Services website, the daycare is registered to care for up to 12 children, ages six weeks to 12 years old. It was inspected just three weeks ago.

No criminal charges have been filed against the provider.

Neighbors are still trying to coming to terms with what they describe as an unthinkable tragedy.

"We have a granddaughter that's 20-months old. I know it's hard to, I just can't imagine, I just can't imagine,'' said Kit Snyder, neighborhood resident.
