Sally Robinson and Keith Bly urge parents to ensure that correct safety measures are in place to protect children against entering the pool without proper supervision. “The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission states 77 percent of the children had been seen 5 minutes or less before being missed and subsequently discovered in the pool. Different methods of protection can be put into place that will create as close to a fail-safe system as possible.”
