Deputies: Florida man smoked marijuana as baby drowned in pool

A Florida man is facing manslaughter charges after authorities say a child he was watching drowned in a backyard pool while he smoked marijuana with a teenager in the front yard.

Bay County Sheriff's Officials say 45-year-old Charles Lee was arrested Wednesday.

The {Panama City} News Herald reports the 1-year-old drowned May 31 at a Panama City Beach home. Deputies gave the boy CPR after a family member found him unresponsive in the pool. The baby died several days later.

Investigators said the boy was left in Lee's care. He initially told investigators he was in the home when the boy drowned, but later admitted to smoking with a 15-year-old in the front yard. Authorities say Lee fled while the boy was hospitalized.

Would this story be posted if he was mowing the front lawn?

2. Mowing the lawn, smoking dope or washing his car...

doesn't matter what other thing he was doing.

HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WATCHING THE BABY.

6. Who was getting high with a 15 year old.

Don't want to leave out that detail either since the "contributing to the delinquency of a minor" charge will be included. Then again, it might be the 15 year old that brought the weed.

7. Where in the story did it say he was smoking dope when the mother...

left the baby with him?

Come on. Cut the bs by suggesting the mother left the baby with someone smoking dope.

8. I agree that the mother of the baby may not have known any better.

I don't know anything beyond what is in the article so I can't speculate as to whether the mother was also to blame. It was a tragic accident and there will be a lot of doubts and suffering to go around. I'm also wondering as to whether the 15-year-old was aware of the baby? There's a lot missing from this article which leads to speculation.

5. It's neglect pure and simple regardless what the adult-in-charge was doing.

So many lives ruined now.
