Every year about 43,000 people are injured in and around swimming pools and more than 600 people drown in home or public pools.
Half of the pool fatalities occur in the yards of single-family homes.
Here are some pool safety tips you should follow:
· · Never dive into an aboveground pool and check the water depth before plunging into an in-ground pool.
· · Keep clear of the area near a diving board.
