Drowning is a high risk for children in the summertime because only a small amount of water is necessary for a drowning injury to take place. Sadly, nearly 300 children under the age of five drown in pools and spas every year.
With this video, you can understand the best ways to make swimming safer for your whole family. It is important to watch children at all times when they swim, and the pool area should be secured when it is not time to enjoy fun by the poolside.
