Keep your children protected throughout the summer by understanding basic safety issues related to above and in-ground pools. Staying safe in public and residential pools is not difficult. But each year, tragic drowning accidents take the lives of hundreds of children.
Last year alone, 202 children between ages one and 14 drowned between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Of those, 143 were children under five years old.
Water is a natural recreational draw for children and adults of all ages. When the temperature rises and school is out, the pool is a place for the community to gather to seek respite from the oppressive North Carolina heat.
If you and your family go to a pool this summer, be sure to keep the following points in mind:
With eight deaths in 2013, North Carolina ranks in the top ten states for swimming pool fatalities. Keep your family safe in and out of the water this year. If you or your child suffers an accident at an unsafe pool in North Carolina, seek advice from a lawyer.
