The child was having trouble breathing and the 25-year-old woman jumped in to save him, according to the Houston Chronicle. 

What happened after the woman jumped in the pool and prior to them both drowning is still unreported. The location of the other four people, while the multiple drownings occurred, is also unsubstantiated at this time.

Crawford’s illustrious MLB career lasted from 2002-2016. Crawford was a four-time All-Star who had a career average of .290 with 136 homers and 480 steals. Crawford then founded, funded, and cultivated Megan Thee Stallion’s rise to superstar status and is currently in a heated legal battle with Megan’s new management company Roc Nation.
