Long Island police continue to investigate the death of a nanny who jumped into pool to save one of her charges in Syosset, Nassau County. Ana Maria Montano de Gimenez could not swim and appeared to die of a heart attack; her employer, Rubian Saunders, had heard her screams but could only manage to pull out her 3-year-old son, who was revived and is being monitored at a hospital. Still, Gimenez's family and friends want answers. Yesterday, an 8-year-old boy drowned in a relative's pool in Queens; the American Academy of Pediatrics has a list of pool safety tips for children.
