Anyway, with that said, I'm not getting the sense of the accident in your covers.
Maybe a child floundering while trying to swim would work?
You might also consider a pic of a stressed woman in a hospital waiting room.
Thanks for the feedback, indianroads. Since I'm going with lit-fic as a genre I'm not wanting to over-represent it with like the child floundering while trying to swim. I just want to allude to the danger. I'm thinking the waves and the abandoned bucket and the title will be enough to get across that something bad has happened to a child.
