A Woman and Young Boy Drown at Home of Former MLB All-Star Carl Crawford


Tragedy struck at the site of former MLB All-Star Carl Crawford’s Houston home on Saturday when a woman and young boy drowned in his pool, according to TMZ Sports.

Crawford was holding a small gathering of six people at his home and while the former outfielder was inside, the young boy, reportedly no older than 5 years old, wandered and fell into the swimming pool. The woman, 25, was taking care of the boy for the day and attempted to save him but neither were able to exit the pool safely.

Per TMZ, Crawford attempted to revive both of them on the spot before the paramedics arrived. Neither were successful.

The victims were rushed to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital where they both were pronounced dead, per the Houston Chronicle.

Crawford, 38, played 15 seasons in the majors, spending time with the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. He retired after the 2016 season.

Crawford’s relationship with the victims is still unclear.
