NFL player's daughter drowns in family pool
< /p> UPDATE DAY
Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett is going through what no parent should be going through right now.
Sunday morning, the footballer's two-year-old daughter Arrayah drowned in the swimming pool at the family's Tampa residence. The area police department confirmed the tragedy to the 'Tampa Bay Times' daily.
Authorities responded to a distress call around 9:30 a.m. and the child was later transported to a center hospital in the area, where he was pronounced dead.
Police released a statement saying an investigation is underway, but it appears the incident was accidental in nature.
“The tragic news today [Sunday] breaks the hearts of all members of the Buccaneers family, said the NFL team in a missive relayed on its social networks. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shaq, Jordanna and the entire Barrett family.”
Shaquil and Jordanna Barrett have three other children, Shaquil Jr., Braylon and Aaliyah. Little Arrayah was born a few weeks after the “Bucs” conquered Super Bowl LV in February 2021.
