During the summer months, thousands of families flock to pools around the Indianapolis area to spend a fun day in the sun. Many of these pools are located on private property, such as an apartment or condominium complex or a private neighborhood. Unfortunately, pools also come with the risk of accidents, injuries, and even death due to drowning. Children are especially at risk for accidents because they may not be mature enough to fully appreciate the risks associated with pools. In fact, the Pool Safety division of the Consumer Product and Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that accidental drowning is the number two cause of death for American children aged 1-14 years.
