  1. Please change the title. The common definition of “drown” is dying by drowning. This girl is BH alive and needs our Tefillos!

  2. Please use the correct terminology, especially in your headlines.

    Drowned means died, R”L. You are causing a lot of agmas nefesh to your readers.

    past tense: drowned; past participle: drowned

    die through submersion in and inhalation of water.
    “she drowned in the pond”

  3. This article is most misleading. ‘Drowned’ means that the person died. The article should have stated that the child “almost drowned.”
