Highest infant drowning rate in US most in Florida swimming pool

Highest rate of infant drowning in US is in the State of Florida according to CPSC. According to them, rate of drowning here is almost double that of other states.
As such, this country has a very high rate of infant drowning according to West Palm Beach and Justice Pool safety advocates. A law has been supported by the CPSC or the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. This law which is effective from nineteenth December 2008 aims to enhance safety measures in spas and swimming pools across the country. Children below fourteen years of age die in large numbers due to accidents in swimming pool.
Floridans are alerted on following the safety guidelines to be followed in spas and pools. These guidelines are issued by South Florida pool attorneys and injury correspondents related to swimming pools from JusticeNewsFlash.com. Here are a few guidelines laid down by them –
Seconds are very precious. If you find a child missing, it is important to look in the pool immediately.
Supervise your children when they are in the pool even though they are provided with floatation devices. Knowing swimming doesn’t make them hundred percent drown proof.
Access to a telephone and rescue equipment is very essential near the swimming pool.
It is a good idea to learn CPR or Cardiopulmonary resuscitation for administering first aid. Access to pool has to be limited with barriers.
According to the pool attorneys from Florida and Palm Beach County reporters, accidents in pools usually occur within five minutes of the children getting into the water.
