Swimming Pool Safety

Jonathon Rigsby can't function like a normal 20 year old. When he was just a toddler, he and his sister fell into their backyard swimming pool while they were in the care of a baby sitter. His sister drowned, Jonathon barely survived.
.Jonathon's mother, Nadina Rigsby says that the sitter was distracted and when she went looking for the children, they were face down in the swimming pool. The Consumer Product Safety Commissions says the most important thing a pool owner can do us create barriers around the pool. They include 4 foot fences and well maintained latches that will close automatically to keep children out. Door alarms are another safety device. Madeline Flannagon of the Independent Insurance Agents of America says many pool owners don't think this isn't a problem because they don't have children. But it is. If a child wanders into your pool, it's your liability, and it could affect you for the rest of your life.
