On June 23rd of 2010, 7 1/2 year old Kaliya, died due to a tragic accident.
Kaliya was a joyful, carefree child, who loved to sing and dance, and had no sense of fear. Kaliya was also non-verbal and Autistic. Though her house was heavily armed with alarms, Kaliya was able to escape through a window. Like 92% of children with Autism, Kaliya was prone to wandering.
After 45 minutes of frantic searching, Kaliya was found at the bottom of a neighbor’s pool.
