Two Young Girls, Two Tragic Stories

Two back-to-back tragedies involving young girls unfolded in South Kitsap Monday.

In the first story, posted Tuesday morning on our web site, a 2 1/2 year-old girl drowned after her father had apparently lost track of her on a 5-acre property, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

Efforts to revive the girl, who was found in a planting pot filled with water, were unsuccessful. She was pronounced dead at Mary Bridge Hospital.

In a separate incident, a 3-month old infant was apparently assaulted “by violent means” Monday, also in South Kitsap, the sheriff’s office said.

The baby girl remains in critical condition at Mary Bridge hospital, and her father, Jason Hanning (pictured, courtesy of KOMO TV), 22, has been jailed on suspicion of first-degree assault.

  1. This Person should never be allowed to have children ever again or to be around a child ever again. Sterilization should be the mandatory part of child abusers’ and pedophiles’ sentencing. I thought death would be good but that would be too good for them, life in prison, no possibility of parole.

  2. I think he should get the same treatment as his daughter. He needs to be put away for good and not say he has a brain problem. That is an old story. I have a lot of words for him.
