There’s a lot of fun that comes along with owning a pool. But many people don’t realize that there’s just as much, if not more responsibility. As a pool owner, it’s your job to make sure your pool area is as safe as possible. This is especially true when there are small children around. They may be tiny, but they’re fast movers who can get in a lot of trouble in a short amount of time.
In Orlando, Florida, a one-year-old boy slipped out the back door and fell into a swimming pool on Christmas Day. When his mother realized what happened, the little boy already had no pulse. She called 911 where an operator walked her through the CPR process and she was able to save her son’s life. A neighbor was trying to do CPR but was doing it the wrong way. After the mom began to administer CPR correctly, the little boy was revived.
We all know this story could have ended much worse. In this case, the child wasn’t even outside near the pool when he got into trouble. He slipped away and shortly found himself nearly drowning in a swimming pool. While it’s unclear if a pool fence was installed in this case, it’s safe to assume that even if there was one there, it was not latched properly.
At Protect-A-Child Pool Fence we not only know the importance of installing a pool fence but the crucial point of keeping it locked when no one is around. While you may think you’re just stepping away for a second, tragedy can strike in that short amount of time.
A pool fence, secured properly, provides peace of mind that everyone near your pool will be safe. It’s an investment you can’t put a price tag on.
