pyrotek85: FTA: The report cites lack of adult supervision as the number one issue. "Royal Life Saving says many of the incidents occur when adults are distracted, or mistakenly think someone else is supervising their child." The next main reason children drown in backyard pools is faulty or propped-open pool gates.Yeah it's totally the pool's fault. If they weren't drowning, they'd probably die in some other manner because they still weren't paying attention to them. Especially for children under 5, they can very easily get into front things that will harm them.
