no family ever has to go through this type of loss. this is a tough day. it was a tough day yesterday. you know, for -- just a horrible day. and i want to just, you know, very difficult to put in words. thousands of families entrust their kids every single day to us here in the city of boston through our different programs. and we take this trust very we're immediately taking and then talk more and take some questions. the first, we're placing the director of the curley community center on paid administrative leave pending the investigation. our plan is to reopen the facility tomorrow for adults. there's three different entrances in the can you remember -- curly. and we're going to reopen it
4:09 pm
our arrangements same as today, vans available to take any parents and kids who want to go to a different facility tomorrow and over the weekend, we'll have access for them to get there like we did today. today went well. i'm not sure the exact number of kids we had that showed up there. but on any given day between 50 and 70 kids that use our facility at the curley community center. depending on the weather and the ability of what the parents can do with their we'll launch an immediate review of all of our protocols at all of our centers. all of the protocol through our entire system. the buses the families operates 37 facilities across the city. those facilities host hundreds of summer programs, including 50 truck and day program and summer camps of the incident occurred at the summer youth activities program, a free drop in center at the curley community center.

4:11 pm
to make sure that nothing like this tragedy ever happens again in the city of boston. outside, as far as the investigation, it's still somewhat an ongoing investigation, we still don't have a lot of questions that people asked earlier this morning. you can ask them again. if we have answers we'll give them to you, if we don't, we'll get them to you when we do have the answer. i want to end with thanking the press for your patience, i guess, for understanding and we went by and other times of the day. so thank you for that. and i'll open up for questions. let me just -- i'll get -- >> reporter: you said going to be moved to -- [inaudible]. >> no. what was happening was the counselors came in to the curly center today to sit down with professionals to talk about what they experienced yesterday. and i believe they're going, they went back to other sites
4:12 pm
sites and will be coming back to this site. they're still going to continue to work on the site. we're reviewing what exactly happened. because you can't blame 28 people working the center for what happened. again, we don't know what happened. so we're going to find out what happened and we'll take appropriate action when we do. >> reporter: reports that a counselor failed to notify the mother immediately upon the child's disappearance? >> no. there's a little bit of a -- i'm not sure exactly. we're frame together. we're not exactly sure in the paper it reports that at 2:15 one of the counselors or lifeguards saw kyzr come out of the water. at 2:45 the police were notified. there's a half hour period there. i'm not saying he was missing the entire time. we're not sure, we're trying to piece together. when exactly did the center realize that he was missing. we don't have all of that information yet.
4:13 pm
as soon as i get all of those facts, you will have them. >> we were talking today about -- [inaudible]. >> reporter: that a woman not be allowed to see the child's -- [inaudible]. >> i don't know if that's a question all the way through today. that's a question you have to ask the medical examiner's office. the mayor's office does not control the medical examiner's office. sthats a state run facility. that's a question you have to ask the state. i'll get to you everybody. >> reporter: with regard to who made contact with the famil cousin? >> yeah, i can't speak to that right now. all i know is what was in the newspaper. we're piecing all of that together. >> reporter: lastly, they claim their older child, the 9-year-old, heard their brother scream prior to the camp -- >> the family told me the same thing today. and, again, i have not had a chance to debrief with these guys about that yet because i came back from the family a few minutes ago.
4:14 pm
>> reporter: who regulates it, how many children, are there how many counselors are required? >> so as the mayor talked about earlier, the program is a drop in program. on any given day, it's not in line with enrollment camps you know who is coming in, this is more drop varies day to day. we have a counsel director, program director, who oversees the staff program, just a director and assistant supervisor and then we have -- this is just a rough number, 25 counselors. that work there and then above that, we have city of boston full time staff that there's two supervisors above that camp
4:15 pm
director program. and 8 lifeguards down at the beach as well. >> reporter: who regulates the program different from the camp? >> the city of boston. >> reporter: this morning, you said you only had -- there was no video for -- no video day boulevard, i asked if the state police had -- >> it's all -- state is supervised all by state police. we supervise boston police department supervises the front door curly recreation center out to the back as far as public safety goes. the curly facility, including the beach are behind curly, the city of boston, everything else around it, all of the other beach is state and all of the roadways in front of state, all of the walkway in front of state as well. we just have the building.
4:16 pm
unless something comes up. >> no. >> just to clarify what we understood earlier that the boy was last seen in the facility? >> just to be clear and just so we get it right, you know, the last -- we're working on exactly the time frame, the last time the boy was seen, according to the "boston globe" story, if i read it correctly, i believe it's at 2:15, the young boy come out of the wa supervisors, lifeguard or somebody saw him at that particular moment. and then from 2:15 until 2:45, we're trying to piece that piece together until the police were notified. i know at some point, again, i don't want to get into it right now. because i want to get the full report. so we can go over the course of next few hours, tomorrow, we can get the fulfill story out. exactly what happened inside, when the search began inside the building for this young boy and then what was the time lapse
4:17 pm
>> reporter: your police department [inaudible]. >> conflicting reports on where he was last seen. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> 50/50 yesterday. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> 22 staffers. let me just clarify the staffing positions so you know. center, the executive director of the center is kind of the boss that oversees the whole program, sees the drop in center but all of other programs that goes on in the facility. that's the gentleman placed on administrative leave. then you have this particular program supervisor, we have an assistant supervisor, we have roughly 28 successful counselors that work with these -- these
4:18 pm
from 15 to 18 years age. also on top of that, 8 lifeguards that patrol the curly record center. and the -- where the kids are, there's always at least two lifeguards on duty, every single time. so that's kind of the staffing of the two -- that's kind of the staffing of this particular facility. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> no. yeah. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> i'm not there's -- >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> i don't know. i don't know the answer to that right now. i'll have to ask that question i'm not sure. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> again, it's about how is the program run. that's what we're looking at right now. because of the programming, because it's a drop in center, i don't know if anyone is familiar with a drop in center, anyone who goes to a boys & girls club,
4:19 pm
you're in an organized effort and sometimes you have open gym. drop in center is like an open gym, where they kind of come and do different activities across the board, that's the difference with having a summer camp and drop in center. the drop in center kids come in, go out the back. staff throughout the facility, where they manage the program. we don't have the particulars of what happened. there's a lot of questions that we have to figure out. >> reporter: away. because these kids that come to our center, their families have no other option for them. they don't have the ability to send them to summer camp, tutoring if they want to send them. this is a last resort for a lot of families and these drop in centers aren't just during the summertime. they're all year long. sometimes this is a safe haven for a lot of our kids in the city of boston. that's why it's important to get the summer help through -- that's why we fund
4:20 pm
the kids that are part of our 10,000 summer jobs, that's how we do that, so we can get young people working in our centers as well. >> . >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> well, we don't know yet. obviously we're awaiting the autopsy results as far as how i can't tell you in the water probably about 15 yards from the shore behind the bath house. and so, again, we worked hard to find that child. like i said, you know, we had a lot of conflicting information. when the mayor talks about, you know, certain people calling -- you can imagine, we had a lot of different kids telling us different things. it's hard to figure out what actually happened.
4:21 pm
on land, we had copters up and unfortunately, around 7 p.m., we made the worse discovery we could. and that was the young child in the water. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> 3:00. part of the house. if you go around the centers today and i'm sure you have. and i would suggest you go around to different centers you see our centers are parents in our city, some parents in our city don't have other options for kids. and they were able to drop them off at our facilities today and we're going to continue to work and take this tragedy and see how we can improve what we have. it's not going to bring back kyzr. and i talked to the family about that today. and i think it was the grandfather said, if something positive can come from his
4:22 pm
give us a little bit of peace. but they were very upset today and very devastated. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> no, i went there to pass on my condolences. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> >> again, we're still working through this. i just ask when you report this, make sure you confirm that we get the right information out on the street. >> . >> because you asked me a question i didn't know. i was following the newspaper account. you asked me a specific question
4:23 pm
and i was using the newspaper as a point of reference, that's why. >> reporter: [inaudible]. >> again, no, i'll comment on that later on. all right. thank you. >> elizabeth: we've been listening in to mayor marty walsh address the death of kyzr willis. we understand he's now replacing the director of the curley community center. that person on administrative leave. they're also reviewing er we heard eric rasmussen ask the mayor about the timeline of everything happened. >> jason: there's a big gap. >> elizabeth: there's a big gap. they're trying to figure out. also asked where he was last seen. the mayor said there was conflicting reports where he was last seen. >> jason: you've got to remember there were lots of kids witnessing pieces of information. he was last seen 2:05 to 2:15. you're talking 30 to 35 minutes in between. >> elizabeth: in the meantime,
4:24 pm
