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.

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