  • A mom left her 3-year-old son to drown at a Texas water park while she “spent hours looking at her phone and singing along to music,” authorities say – but her lawyer claims inattentive lifeguards are at fault.
  • Jessica Weaver, 35, was accused of negligence and charged with injury to a child by omission in the death of her only child, little Anthony Leo Malave, at Camp Cohen Water Park in El Paso.
  • Several witnesses described Weaver as being recklessly inattentive before her son drowned during a “soft opening” of the city-owned park in May, the El Paso Times reported, citing a criminal complaint.
