Father gains new life mission after losing his toddler to drowning


One Saline County father has a mission to make sure other parents don’t suffer the loss he went through when his child drowned.

Brandon Love faced a parent’s worst nightmare nearly three years ago when his 2-year-old son, Bentley, drowned in a neighbor’s swimming pool.

Fast forward to now, the sound of splashing water is a constant reminder of his new life purpose.

“I have kind of made it my mission to be a water-safety warrior,” said Love. “Start swimming lessons with your kids as soon as possible, and please be vigilant. Always be aware.”
