Daycare Provider Implicated in Child Drowning

In the news today:

A daycare provider in Canon City, Colorado has pleaded guilty to child abuse for the drowning death of a four-year-old child who was in her care.

The child drowned in her backyard pool last month. The child was reportedly playing with a group of children near the pool and fell in. Reports indicate that the adult caregiver was inside the house, making lunch for the children.

The caregiver was licensed to have eight children in her home, but at the time of the drowning, had 13 children in her home.  There is no indication whether or not there was a  swimming pool barrier in place on the property, however, combined with proper adult supervision, a pool fence or pool safety net could have helped prevent this terrible tragedy.

Toddler Drowns in Backyard Pool

In the news today is the story of a two-year-old Sacramento boy that drowned Sunday in a backyard swimming pool while visiting relatives.
Paramedics transported the boy to a local hospital but he could not be revived.
Basic safety measures like installing a fence around a swimming pool and alarms on doors leading to the pool area can help prevent similar accidents, said the local Fire Deputy Chief. Both precautions are required by building codes, but the rules only apply to new pools and said homeowners sometimes disable the alarms after they are installed.
More information about swimming pool fences and pool safety can be found at All-Safe's website.

Pediatricians in Florida Support Swimming Lessons for Young Children

An article in Pool & Spa News reports that a Florida drowning-prevention initiative is expanding with the backing of pediatricians.

Pediatricians statewide soon will become part of an effort to promote water safety, including swim education and instruction for young children, as part of the Florida Drowning Prevention Task Force.

This comes on the heels of a major policy shift by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Last summer, the group reversed its long-held recommendation that children under age 4 should not be given swim lessons.

Family Has New Mission after Son Nearly Drowns

In the news today: The Shores family of Mesa, Arizona was trying to do everything right when it came to protecting their kids around water.

They say they never let their children around the pool without supervision, and they were teaching their two-year-old to swim. However, the one thing they waited to get was a swimming pool fence.

The couple, who have two other children, were inside talking when their two-year-old slipped away and got right into the pool.

The next thing they recall seeing is the water rippling.

The mother of three jumped in and pulled the child out, but her CPR wasn't effective, so her husband took over.

"Within maybe 10 to 15 compressions and 30 breaths he finally came to," he said. "It was the best sound in the world."

Paramedics and firefighters took the child to the hospital but he's now fully recovered.

Out of this near drowning has come a new mission for the Shores family about the dangers of pools and not having a pool fence.

"You can never be too safe," says Melissa Shores. "Get a pool fence and if you have a pool, learn CPR."

At the time the Shores didn't have a pool fence. They were just five days from getting one.

"We received the gift of life, that's priceless for us to give back to the community. If we can prevent one family from going through what we've gone through we've done everything possible," Scott Shores said.

The family has teamed up with Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona.

Anyone who donates a a new packaged toy, book or money on August 14th will get $3 off car washes at Classic Car Spa locations in Goodyear, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale and Tempe, Arizona.

Drowning Was Second Accident in Two Years

In Brockton, MA, the state Department of Children and Families is conducting an investigation at the home where 4-year-old twin sisters died after being found in the family's inground swimming pool at their home Saturday morning, officials said.

A neighbor recalled that two years ago one of the twin girls was rushed to the hospital after she fell into the same pool. The neighbor said the girl's father had administered CPR and the child was taken to the hospital, but was fine and back home the next day. It appears the parents did not take steps install a barrier to the swimming pool.

A press release from the DA's office issued Sunday said, "the circumstances surrounding the drowning are (under) investigation by state police detectives assigned to the Plymouth County district attorney’s office and the Brockton police." The DA said there would be no further details released at this time.

Parents of Children who Drowned Arrested

The parents of two children who were found dead in a neighbor's swimming pool in Jacksonville, FL last month have been arrested in connection with their drownings and have told police they had left the two alone before.

They turned themselves in to police with their attorney this morning around 9 and remain in jail on $50,000 bond each.

According to a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office (JSO) report, the mother left her children unattended at home around 6:35 p.m. to go to work. She had called her husband, who was at work, and he told her he was leaving his job to come home and be with the two children, police said.

But, the report said, he did not leave his job and offered alternate stories about where he was. First, he said his car broke down, then later said he stayed at work to get "more hours" of pay.

He admitted that he and his wife had left their children alone on other occasions.

The owner of the home where the children were found in the pool said he was not at home at the time of the drownings, but had left the pool gate around the pool latched from inside the yard, the police report said. The owner found a wooden stepladder, which was not his, outside the gate. Another neighbor said the children had been outdoors playing with the ladder the day they died.

The State Attorney's Office released a statement today explaining their rationale for the charges:

"Parents and caregivers owe a special duty to provide their children with the supervision and care necessary for those dependent upon them. When parents and caregivers fail in that obligation, it is the duty of law enforcement to investigate and charge those responsible. We are mindful of the great loss these parents have suffered, but the facts and circumstances of this case demand the filing of criminal charges.

Parental responsibility for the safety and supervision of their children has, and will remain, a bedrock principle of the State's Attorney Office."

Pool Safety Tip of the Week

Do not swim at night and teach your children not to swim at night either. This can be dangerous because your vision is limited, it is hard to see directly in front of you, and if someone is in distress, it can be hard to see him or her.
