Preventing Drowning Accidents in Arizona


Preventing Drowning Accidents

Arizona provides wonderful weather that is prime for pool parties for children in the summers.  Unfortunately, Arizona is also known for the deaths of children in private home pools.  Preventing drowning accidents is our duty as parents.  Drowning accidents can cause permanent head injuries to children.  As such, all Arizona adults should help in preventing drowning accidents.  

Proper Response to Avoid Injury

Learning the signs of this reaction can help you save the life of a child, or in preventing drowning accidents altogether.  Drowning victims typically extend their arms laterally and press down on the surface of the water.  They may also not respond verbally, or may be gasping while not using their legs.  These are signs of drowsing and a potentially severe injury.  Proactive responses include having adults take turns supervising the children as they use the pool.  Life guards can also be hired during kid's parties to prevent any water related accidents.  Unfortunately, we see reports on our Arizona channels every summer that document the injury or death of a child--being proactive is the key to avoiding accidents and injuries.   

Time is Critical When Helping a Drowning Victim

Once a person begins drowning, he or she must be rescued in less than one minute.  In the case of young child, the window of opportunity is even narrower.  Delayed rescue times in swimming pool accidents can result in serious injuries, or even death.  Improper supervision by adults, or lack of life guards can result in tragic water accidents.  Thus, it is important to act quickly and without hesitation when preventing drowning accidents.   CONTACT A TUCSON LAWYER   If your loved one was the victim of a drowning accident, the attorneys at the Lara Law Firm can help.  Contact our office today for a free consultation regarding your case.
