A Florida mother is being criticized by bloggers and Twitter users for posting a tweet less than an hour after her 2-year-old son drowned in a swimming pool at her home.

Shellie Ross, a 38-year-old stay-at-home mother who lives outside Patrick Air Force Base, posted a message asking that people pray for her son after he had fallen into the family's swimming pool on Monday.

Her son, Bryson, died at a hospital less than an hour after paramedics responded.

Some of her Twitter followers have also defended her.

On her blog, Ross has asked media outlets to leave her alone and said she won't comment on what happened.
