A few months ago, Julia was battling a bad case of the flu. She was home alone with her one-year-old, Jayah, who was happily watching a TV show. Julia felt the urgent need to go to the bathroom, so she stepped away from the living room for a few minutes. She had no idea how fast things could go from normal to tragic.

When Julia came back from the bathroom, she was startled to find that Jayah was no longer in the living room. Then, she saw that the back door was cracked open. Jayah had already learned to toddle, so Julia realized she had gone outside. Her heart stopped in an instant, knowing what was in the backyard.

The Thrashes live in Arizona, where it gets pretty hot in the summer. So, like any other middle-class family, they have a pool in their backyard. Julia rushed outside to look for Jayah. That’s when her worst fears materialized: Jayah was floating, face down, near the edge of the pool. Julia screamed and pulled her out as fast as she could. But she didn’t know how long her baby had been submerged.

Moments Of Panic And Fear

Julia took Jayah inside and called 911 as she rushed to give her daughter CPR. In the call recording, Julia can be heard wailing and begging Jayah to come back to life. She even took some accidental selfies in the chaos of the moment. But her efforts didn’t seem to be working — the toddler was freezing cold, and lifeless. Help soon arrived, but the situation remained dire.

First responders took over reviving efforts, while Julia was taken to a separate room to allow room for them to work. The baby was then transported to Banner Thunderbird Medical Center to continue to try and save her. But, 1.5 hours after Julia found her daughter in the pool, the writing seemed to be on the wall.
