I’m raising awareness about child drowning deaths — but critics call me sick

Actor Lewis Saunderson from the UK faced backlash on social media after he shared a disturbing video of an unchaperoned toddler drowning in a kiddie pool. The footage, which has accumulated over 43.2 million views, shows Saunderson sobbing while cradling the limp body of a small boy and cautioning parents not to leave their children unattended in pools this summer. Despite Saunderson's disclaimers that the post was an "awareness video," many viewers were angered by his display and criticized him for making light of a serious topic. Saunderson defended the video as an "awareness video" and claimed it has inspired some supporters.
