Flanagan & Bodenheimer Investigating Toddler’s Tragic Drowning in Florida

Flanagan & Bodenheimer Injury and Wrongful Death Law Firm

Implement These Practical Pool Safety Tips To Keep Your Kids Safe

Flanagan & Bodenheimer is currently investigating a tragic incident involving the drowning of a two-year-old child in their grandparents’ pool. This heartbreaking accident underscores the need for heightened pool safety measures in Florida.

As we navigate this investigation, we urge families, pool owners, and communities to reassess and reinforce their commitment to pool safety. By adopting enhanced safety measures, we can work towards preventing future tragedies and fostering a safer environment for everyone, especially our children.

In the Sunshine State, the warm climate often allows for year-round pool use. The holiday season typically involves an increase in family gatherings and activities around the pool. Implementing safety measures becomes even more critical during this time to prevent accidents.

Pool Fence

Install a four-sided fence around the pool area with a self-closing and self-latching gate. This acts as a primary barrier, limiting unsupervised access to the pool. While commercial spaces have laws that require pool fences, many homes in Florida lack adequate pool gates. Ensure that gates are equipped with child-resistant latches that are positioned high enough to be out of a child’s reach.

Pool Alarm

Install a pool alarm, which alerts you whenever the water’s surface is disturbed. These alarms are available on Amazon for as low as $35.

Swimming Lessons

Enroll children in age-appropriate swimming lessons. While swimming ability does not replace the need for supervision, it can be a valuable skill in promoting water safety.

Regular Maintenance

Keep the pool area well-maintained. Address any issues promptly, such as broken gates, damaged fencing, or malfunctioning alarms, to ensure the ongoing effectiveness of safety measures. Have pool pump and additional safety components inspected by licensed contractors.
