Golf great Jack Nicklaus’ 17-month-old grandson, Jake Walter Nicklaus, died yesterday evening after falling into a hot tub.
The son of Jack’s son Steve Nicklaus, Jake had been playing in the hot tub with his 4-year-old brother and their nanny. They had left the pool area but Jake slipped away and went back through a sliding door to the hot tub. After the nanny noticed him missing and finding him in the water, she performed CPR until fire-rescue workers arrived. The boy was breathing at the time, but he later died at the hospital.
Apparently, there was a child barrier around the entire pool area- perhaps it was left open.
This tragedy reminds us that you have to constantly keep an eye on all mobile children at all times. It only takes a few seconds.
Please keep the Nicklaus family in your thoughts (and prayers if you do that) and keep an eye on those kids.
