Summer Fun in the Water With Shea Law Group

Published on June 17th, 2011

With temperatures on the rise, children are starting to swim and cool off in the water.  There is no better feeling then jumping into a cold swimming pool after a hot day of fun in the sun.  Every summer there are thousands of accidents that happen each year. Many kids are busy having fun with their friends and forget about water safety.

When playing by water it is important that children remember to walk slowly, running can result in slipping and even injuries. Also diving into shallow waters can be extremely dangerous. Diving into shallow waters can cause injuries to the head and neck as well as other parts of the body.

Approximately 1,000 children die each year from downing. This can be prevented by parents being aware of where their children are, when there is a pool in close proximity.  Children that cannot swim should be wearing a flotation device to ensure their safety.

The good news is summer can still be fun while being safe! If you or a loved one have been injured please call Shea Law Group at (773) 365-0040.
