Former MLB Star Issues Statement After Woman and Child Drown at His House

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 last week 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 25-year-old 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). Crawford has responded on Instagram with a very heavy heart:

"My heart's heavy. This tragic event that occurred at my home will be with me forever. I am at a loss of words. I've struggled all week to manage my emotions and I keep thinking of the families of those who've passed and their grief, I know they have it the hardest. They are the first and last thing I think of these days. Please keep them in your prayers, I know they will always be in mine."
