Attorney David Daggett of Daggett Shuler Law will appear on Triad Today with host Jim Longworth to discuss summer swimming safety. The Triad Today program airs on WXLV ABC45 and WMYV My48 on Saturday, July 20th, and Sunday, July 21st.
While swimming is a fun summertime activity, it can also present serious dangers. Daggett Shuler Law has written a handy e-book with plenty of tips to keep you and your family safe when around water.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that drowning is one of the leading causes of injury death in kids aged 1-14, and that three children fall victim to drowning each day. However, there are precautions that can be taken to reduce the risk of a tragic accident.
- Always supervise children in water, and avoid distractions such as looking at your phone or turning away even for a moment.
- Make sure children are well-versed in water safety rules, such as no diving in shallow water and no running near the pool.
- Swimming lessons are a great way to get kids comfortable in water, and teach them the fundamentals such as floating, climbing out of bodies of water, and self-rescue skills. Lessons are available for children as young as one year old.
- All pools should have fencing around them in order to ensure that no one enters the water without permission and supervision. In some states, this is a legal requirement.
- Life vests should be worn by weak swimmers, and they should always be worn when boating, regardless of swimming skills.
