Be Extra Cautious of Children Near Pools

I was hanging out at the pool this weekend, enjoying my Father’s Day outing with my six year old son, I watched him playing with his friends on a raft in the pool, and became concerned when they were too near the edge of the pool with a bunch of kids at once on the raft. While some may accuse me of being an overly paranoid parent, I could not help but think of what would happen if the raft were to turn over and one of the kids strike the side of their head on the concrete edge of the pool. The temporal area of the skull and brain is one of the most vulnerable to head injury, and that is the area of the head likely to hit the pool edge in that scenario. Please stay safe with your kids this summer, and do everything you can to minimize head injury.
