Swimming Pool Injury

While swimming can be one of the most enjoyable hot-weather past-times, there are many risks involved. Swimming pool injuries can occur in a variety of ways; a person can be hurt by slipping on a wet pool deck, diving or jumping into water that is too shallow, falling from a pool ladder (particularly an above-ground pool), electric shock from faulty hoses and cables, poisoning due to chemical overload, and most commonly, drowning.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, an average of ten people die each day from unintentional drowning, and many of those accidents occur in swimming pools. Unfortunately, one in five of those drowning victims are children under the age of 14. Furthermore, for every drowning-related death of a child, there are 5 cases of non-fatal accidents with children. These injuries often are the result of the children not having had proper swim training or safety equipment when entering the pool. Other times, an unsupervised child has wandered into a pool area and either intentionally entered or fallen into the swimming pool.

While drowning instances are the worst case scenario, other swimming pool injuries can be considerable. They can cause severe brain trauma and damage, spinal cord damage, broken bones, and permanent disability.
