“My Hearts Heavy. The tragic events that occurred at my home will be with me forever. I’m at a loss for words I’ve struggled all week to manage my emotions and I keep thinking of the families of those who’ve passed and their grief, I know they have it the hardest.”
He continued, “They are the first and last thing I think of these days. Please keep them in your prayers, I know they will always be in mine.” He captioned his post with prayer hands.

According to TMZ a woman and child both fell into his pool and, ultimately, died. Carl tried resuscitating them himself, but was unsuccessful. Paramedics eventually arrived and transported the two victims, who were unresponsive.The boy was no more than 5 years old, but the woman he was with was not his mother — he was simply in her care for the day. Carl was hosting a small gathering that weekend.
The baseball star turned music manager has been having a stressful year to say the least. His 1501 Certified Entertainment imprint was embroiled in a heated legal battle with rap star Megan Thee Stallion. Crawford alleged Meg dumped the label after signing a management deal with Roc Nation. He also claimed Megan was disloyal and said 1501 invested millions to make her a star. As a result Crawford and crew tried to halt Megan from releasing new music, but a judge ruled in her favor and also granted her a temporary restraining order.
