Do your kids love to splash and swim in the summer sun? Of course they do! But, parents should pay close attention to their kids when having fun in the sun as statistics show each year that many children drown in backyard swimming pools and in small kiddie pools. In fact, statistics show that kids under the age of five have the highest risk of drowning. Let Truestar show you how your kids can play safely in the water this summer.
Why Kids Are In Danger
Kids get hurt while swimming because they like to play in the water, but they dont understand the risks involved, such as drowning. Kids also have a tendency to jump into the water quickly and silently without adult supervision. You may be surprised to know that kids can drown in only a few centimeters (1 inch) of water. Although younger kids under the age of five are at the most risk of drowning, older kids are at risk too. Older kids are more likely to drown when swimming in a river, lake or other open body of water because they maybe used to swimming in a pool, but dont understand the risks involved in other types of water.
