Report released on Waco foster kids who drowned in Central Texas lake

CENTRAL TEXAS - New details have been released surrounding the drowning deaths of two Waco foster kids in Lake Georgetown last month. 

According to a report released by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, the foster parents of those children failed to meet four out of the six requirements in taking care of the children.

Investigators say the parents did not know the two children were in the water. Those two children did not know how to swim, even though the water was only 2-3 feet deep.

They also had no life vests on at the time while the parents were 66 yards away. So far, no charges have been filed, but the agency did provide the parents with technical assistance.

The report recommended the parents be told not to leave kids alone in water. Make sure you can always see them, and if they can't swim, that they are in life vests.
