The parents of twin toddlers who drowned in a West Knox County swimming pool last year are suing the babysitter who was in charge of watching the children, Knoxnews reports. The lawsuit claims Jennifer Salley, a 34-year-old who was operating an unlicensed daycare, left the toddlers unattended long enough that they were able to get out of a bedroom, move around inside the house, go outside, get onto the deck, pass through one or more gates into the backyard and fall into the swimming pool. The parents are seeking damages that total more than $50 million.
