When a complex security guard, who is also a Dallas policeman, approached Thomas to inform her that the pool was closed, she called out to the children and Kanyce did not respond. Thomas allegedly borrowed the guard’s flashlight to look for the toddler and literally stumbled upon the little girl when she stepped in to the pool to search for her.
Emergency CPR was performed on the child by the guard while the EMT and police were summoned.
Kanyce was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital facility.
Thomas is being held on a $25,000 bond and the current charge could be escalated to something more serious.
