Swimming pool accidents don’t just contemplate poor swimmers. Here are some other causes of accidents in both public and private pools:

  • Inattentive life-guarding.
  • Drain suction.
  • The lack of proper fencing.
  • Negligent supervision at private pools.
  • Failure to have rescue equipment on hand.
  • Diving accidents due to poorly marked water depths.
  • Slip-and-falls and trip-and-falls.

Common Swimming Pool Injuries
Aside from fatal drownings, other severe or catastrophic injuries result from swimming pool accidents every year. Those can include brain damage from oxygen deprivation and paralysis from spinal cord injuries. Other injuries might include electrocution, traumatic brain injuries, fractures and dental injuries.
