KISSIMMEE, Fla. – A local mother is using her tragic experience to help families in Central Florida through her nonprofit organization, Cata’s Little Swimmers.
María Martinez’s 15-month-old daughter died March 6, 2018.
“Up to this day it’s something — it’s hard to understand how it happened, but we still take it day by day,” Martinez said.
Her daughter, Catalina, fell into the pool at her home. There was a safety fence around the pool, but it wasn’t enough.
