A member of Hayden’s family spoke out for the first time to News Center 7’s Caroline Reinwald on July 26.

“This is a very tragic accident. It’s affected our whole family,” Nicole Hardin said of her young nephew who nearly drowned.

At that time, Hayden was on life support at Dayton Children’s Hospital. He had swelling on his brain, she said.

“It’s heartbreaking. It’s devastating. It’s going to change their family forever,” Hardin said.

Hayden’s aunt described him as a vivacious young boy before the accident.

“He’s just your typical 3-year-old, full of life, sweet little boy,” she said. 

Hayden drowned on his older brother’s 9th birthday. Hayden’s brother found him in the pool.

“He pulled him from the pool, got his parents, his mom did CPR,” Hardin said.

By the time medics arrived ... and got Hayden to the hospital ... he had been without oxygen for about 20 minutes.

“The family just needs all the support that they can get right now,” Hardin said.

The accident

A woman who identified herself as Hayden’s mother posted a request for prayers for her young son on her Facebook page: 

“I know God has a plan for my child. I don’t know what it is yet, so I’m trying to be patient,” Brandi Stoll posted about her son. “The love from family and friends, even strangers is building.

“From Chuck and I, thank you all for all the love, support and prayers,” she said.  “Please keep them going!”

Police said family members found the 3-year-old boy unresponsive in the pool and called emergency dispatchers. 

The child was not breathing when he was taken to the hospital, Huber Heights police Sgt. Charles Taylor said.

“At the time the child was unresponsive, the medics did remove that child immediately and started treatment there,” Taylor said.

Parents of Otto Warmbier file wrongful death lawsuit against N. Korea

The parents of Otto Warmbier are suing North Korea in a 22-page complaint filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. 

Warmbier was a college student from Wyoming, Ohio, who was jailed in North Korea and died shortly after he was returned to the United States in a coma. 

Fred and Cindy Warmbier, in the lawsuit, accuse Kim Jong Un's "criminal" regime of brutally torturing and murdering the 22-year-old during his 17-month-long captivity from Jan. 2, 2016, through June 13, 2017. 

Otto Warmbier died on June 19, 2017, in Cincinnati. 

"Otto was taken hostage, kept as a prisoner for political purposes, used as a pawn and singled out for exceptionally harsh and brutal treatment by Kim Jong Un. Kim and his regime have portrayed themselves as innocent, while they intentionally destroyed our son's life. This lawsuit is another step in holding North Korea accountable for its barbaric treatment of Otto and our family," said Fred Warmbier in a statement.

Last summer, Fred Warmbier told the hosts of "Fox & Friends" and CNN "it looked like someone had taken pliers and tried to rearrange" Otto's bottom teeth. He said he noticed this while examining his son after he returned to the U.S. in June. 

The Hamilton County Coroner's Office disputed that account, our news partners have reported. County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco said she did not see "any evidence of trauma" to Otto's teeth upon his return from North Korea and that she was surprised by the Warmbier's statements. 

The Warmbiers also attended President Trump's State of the Union address in January. 

"You are powerful witnesses to a menace that threatens our world, and your strength inspires truly us all," Trump said to the Warmbiers. "Tonight, we pledge to honor Otto's memory with total American resolve." 

Fred Warmbier accompanied Vice President Mike Pence to the Olympics in South Korea.
