Thanks from Jada's Family
To the Editor:
Your June 13 edition covered the heroic actions of a lady named Katie Casey and her friend Claude Muff. If not for their actions our family would be without a sweet little girl today. No words can describe the gratitude we have for Katie and Claude. We also want to thank the rescue personnel, Larry is the name Jada recalls; the fire department, the Norway Hospital, the Oxford County Sherriff's Department, The Bethel Inn and many others who helped out with their assistance and caring.
I would like to take this opportunity to warn other parents and caregivers about snorkels. Please make sure the one you purchase will not allow them to breath in water. The one Jada had said for 4-plus and had no safety valve. One by the same company that had the safety valve was for 10-plus. Jada took in water and essentially drowned. Thank God for the angels who were present and brought her back.
