Bless her for making sure her son was safe, whatever happened. That said... I personally don't know any parent of a 2 year old who would go out on an open body of water (ocean, lake or river) with a strong current on an unanchored boat to take the toddler swimming. Most parents I know barely let their 2/3 year olds near a shallow pool.

Such tragic news! And Naya's body was found exactly 7 years to the day when Cory Monteith died. Now three talented Glee cast members have died. Enough already!

She mustered enough energy to save her son, but not enough to save herself. That is absolutely heartbreaking 💔💔💔💔

The lake is known for it's notorious strong currents and the boat wasn't anchored, I wouldn't be surprised if she was exhausted and had no energy left. It's not dramatic at all, these things happen unfortunately.

Rest in peace you beautiful soul, gone way too early :( but can SOMEONE please answer my question because I am confused, they originally said that a 911 call was made my a lady out on the lake as well who saw the boat drifting and who first mistaked her son josey by a girl WHO IS THAT? and then they also said that once the boating lease was up the crew members went to look for there boat and saw the boat driffting and josey was just on it. Which one was it?

Could've gotten a leg cramp then drowned, perhaps it's why she didn't return to the boat?

The fact that she pass away the same day as her co star and friend Corey anniversary of his 7 year of his passing is sad. Rip to one of my biggest role model.

Well she died on the 8th...her body was found on his anniversary of his body being found, not sure if he actually died on the 13th or before, I do know he was supposed to check out of the hotel at noon and when he didn't the staff checked the room and found him, I don't believe there is anything nefarious about the dates, just coincidence and irony

@Matt. Actually if you look up the term 'orphaned' it says in common usage, only a child whose parents have both died is an orphan. So you aren't an orphan.

She could have thought she did, the depths in that area is 35-60 feet anchor may have snagged temporarily on branches or Reed's and she thought it struck bottom....sad all the way around we should just be thankful that little boy didn't jump back in to look for his mommy poor little guy

@Ang D Makes me think some combination of depression and medication/self medication was at play. Happens to a lot of actresses when there fame is on the down slide unfourtanetly.

@Last Christmas I gave u my Fart I also wondered why she parked so far away with the lot almost empty. All definitely weird and unfortunate.
Last Christmas I gave u my Fart
Not really that strange. Look how she parked, look how she rented a boat far too big for her to operate while watching a toddler, look how she ignored the danger she of swimming signs. She was irresponsible af. But that’s holly weird I guess.

I think that maybe when she went to get out of the water with her son, she slipped from being wet and hit her face or head on the boat. It makes sense no? Her son said that she helped him up, but when he looked back she was under the water and gone. My heart breaks, so young🥺💔
Adele 2 months ago
I can't even imagine how scary/painful it is to drown, poor girl. This makes me want to avoid going in to the water.

I think she was out of breath and had no energy left to swim, they went for a quick swim and didn’t anchor their boat and they were in a deep spot with currents in that spot, she probably chased the boat and helped her son on the boat and obviously drowned :(

She got her son on the boat and not hersef? Was it still floating away as she was hoisting him up and she just let go of the boat after? What? Or did she go out for a swim and just couldnt get back in the boat because it floated away? Did the son pull a lever.. Idk I'm just shocked, the son said she went swimming and she didnt come back not she push me on the boat etc.. Idk.. Ughh This is so sad

@ᵀʰʳᵉᵉ ᵒᶠ ᵃ ᴷⁱⁿᵈ how did she make it back to the boat with the boy if it was drifting that fast. Why was her life jacket nt on? Why do they keep changing what the boy say? Do you know after I post those comments I went to a website and seen they had a answer for literally in a row my answers. Now the boy specifically said mommy shoved me up on the boat and I turned around and zhe was going down in the water?. They stop the search midway? Searched cabins etc. Go to the website it says its calm lake no winds or bad weather you can get ski amd fall off or swim to shore. The diver even gave an excuse on why she couldnt float cuz she got a leg cramp..like ..I kid you not like they read our convo or something idk wierd ill post the link give me a sec
