CORPUS CHRISTI -- The arrest affidavit for the stepmother who was taking care of her stepson when he drowned near Bob Hall Pier last Friday gives details of her account of the drowning that appears to contradict what she told the boy's biological mother the day he died.
In the affidavit, Laura Day details what she told authorities the night Taylor Syring, 6, drowned while playing in the water without wearing a life preserver.
The affidavit said that Day "...never administered CPR," and that she "...never called 911 nor asked for help to the people that were around her at the beach," after she found Taylor facedown in the water.
But in an interview Tuesday, Taylor's biological mother, Kelly Syring, said that Day told her she did perform CPR when they spoke at the hospital the day Taylor died. "I asked, 'Well, was CPR done?' and she [Day] said, 'Yeah, CPR was done.'"
The affidavit also notes that although Day did not perform CPR, she "...is a diver and is certified to perform CPR."
Syring said when she spoke with Day shortly after the incident, Day told her she drove Taylor to the hospital herself because they were too far away for emergency responders to arrive in time. But, according to the affidavit, "...there are at least 2 fire stations that were passed by Laura Day."
Syring could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
