Dodgers: Double drowning reported at Carl Crawford’s house
A fatal double drowning reportedly occurred at former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford’s home this weekend.
A woman and child reportedly died after being pulled from a swimming pool at former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford‘s home this weekend, per TMZ Sports.
According to the report, Crawford was hosting a small gathering of about six people at his home in Houston, when a young boy fell into the swimming pool located in the back of the house. A woman reportedly jumped into the pool to try to save him, and unfortunately, both later died.
Crawford tried reviving both the woman and young boy, but was unsuccessful, according to TMZ Sports.
A CBS affiliate in Houston confirmed a drowning occurred at a Houston home on Saturday afternoon, but TMZ Sports was the first to report the house belonged to Crawford. The affiliate report indicates the woman and boy died at the hospital, while TMZ reports they died at the scene. The CBS affiliate, KHOU-11, recorded footage outside of the house that appears to show Crawford walking outside to talk to police officers at the scene.
Crawford played for the Dodgers from 2013-2016, before being designated for assignment with approximately $35 million remaining on his contract.
After retiring from baseball, the speedy outfielder has been keeping busy as the CEO of an independent Houston record label, which originally signed hip hop artist Megan Thee Stallion. The rapper would later sue the record label to get out of her contract.
