This is the saddest story. A 13-year-old boy named Anthony Johnson was on vacation in Florida with his family when he tragically died after being found at the bottom of the Pop Century Resort pool. Anthony was playing with his family and friends, including his brother, when his parents noticed that he was missing. They pulled him out of the pool and two vacationing Fire Fighters and a doctor helped give Anthony CPR before he was taken to a local hospital where he passed away two days later.
Disney has released the following statement:
“We are saddened by Anthony Johnson’s passing and our hearts go out to his family, friends and loved ones. We have reached out to his family to offer care and assistance during this difficult time.”
Our thoughts are with Anthony’s family and friends at this time.
