Summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors – and to cool off in swimming pools. While a lot fun can be had at pools and waterparks, however, accidents can and do happen.
In fact, according to some of the latest findings,1 every year in the U.S., an average of 5,600 people seek emergency medical care for pool-related injuries, and nearly 3 in every 4 of these injuries impacts a child younger than 5 years. What’s potentially more tragic is the fact that children are most often the victims of fatal pool accidents – and that many of these accidents are preventable
