Woman and Young Child Drown in Pool During Party at Former MLB Star's House

World Series: Tampa Bay Rays v Philadelphia Phillies, Game 5

A 25-year-old woman and a 5-year-old boy drowned in the backyard pool of former Dodger outfielder Carl Crawford’s house on Saturday afternoon, according to The Houston Chronicle’s Paul Takahashi.

The 5-year-old reportedly started having trouble breathing in the pool on property owned by Crawford. The woman then jumped in and tried to save him. The Houston police and fire departments were reportedly called around 2:40 p.m. and found the woman and boy unresponsive. They were declared dead after being transported to Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital.

According to TMZ, Crawford has been hosting a small gathering of six people at the home (gatherings of 10 people or fewer are allowed in Houston). The boy had reportedly wandered out and fell into the pool, and Crawford reportedly tried reviving both him and the woman after they couldn’t exit the pool safely.

Crawford’s 15-year MLB career ended in 2016 after stints with the Boston Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers, including a World Series appearance with Tampa in 2008.

Crawford was a 4-time All-Star who led the league in stolen bases 4 times, and also led the league in triples 4 times as well. He finished 7th in AL MVP voting in 2010 when he batted .307 with 19 home runs, 90 RBIs, 110 runs, and 47 SBs with the Rays.
