Swimming pool accidents and other water-related accidents can occur in just moments and frequently result in life-long injuries and/or the loss of a loved one. When I was much younger, the only time my brother and I went to the pool was during the summer when school was out and the only pool available was at the local YMCA.
Swimming Pools Mean More Responsibility
Nowadays, families have a multitude of pools at their local gyms, country clubs, outdoor water parks such as Zoombezi Bay, as well as indoor water parks such as Kalahari Resorts where the family can enjoy swimming, splashing and waterslides year round.
Along with the increased access to water parks and swimming pools, parents, resorts, and lifeguards have an increased responsibility to ensure that children can have a great time in a safe environment.
