Paramedics rushed to a house in Woodland Hills, California, after a distress call claimed a 2 year old child was in a swimming pool accident. The boy fell into the pool and sustained serious injuries though he was conscious when airlifted to the UCLA Medical Center. The boy now is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
Swimming pool accidents are quite common, and drowning is in fact one of the leading causes of unintentional deaths for toddlers. Swimming pool accidents are extremely serious and the injuries are usually catastrophic. Sadly, in many cases, victims will drown and lose their lives. In other situations, victims who are revived can experience brain damage or trauma, and their lives will be seriously altered.
When it comes to swimming pool accidents, liability is a huge issue. Proper fencing should always be installed, and adequate supervision should be of biggest concern to any child’s parent or guardian. If you or a loved one has been involved in a swimming pool accident as a result of another’s negligence, make sure to contact a personal injury attorney who can guide you through the necessary steps to attain compensation while making certain the responsible party is held accountable for their actions.
