The parents of a 3-year-old boy who drown in a crowded public pool in New Jersey filed a civil lawsuit on Tuesday.

It accuses pool administrators and the six lifeguards on-duty that day with negligence.

Surveillance video of the city owned pool in Trenton shows little Darren Horton, Jr. struggling for about 4 minutes to stay afloat in the crowded pool last summer.

One distracted lifeguard is less than 25 feet away, talking with a girl.

A neighbor had brought Horton and several other children to the pool that day.
