Tampa Pool Safety Fence Alert: In Home Danger: CPSC Warns of Children Drowning in Bathtubs, Bath Seats and Buckets
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 27, 2012
CPSC Recall Hotline: (800) 638-2772
More than 400 deaths estimated over a five-year period
Tampa FL- The danger of drowning for young children is ever present in and around the home. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death among children ages 1 to 4 years-old and it takes only a few inches of water for a young child to drown. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging parents and caregivers to look for and protect against drowning risks inside and around their homes.
A new CPSC report on in home drownings and non-fatal
submersions (pdf) in products such as bathtubs, buckets, bath seats, toilets, and landscaping features indicates that from 2006 to 2010, there were 684 incidents involving children younger than five-years-old. This figure includes 434 fatalities (an average of 87 per year), 233 injuries, and 17 incidents with no known injuries. Eighty-two percent of the victims were younger than the age of two and 81 percent of the incidents involved bathtubs or bath related products. After pools, bathtubs are the second leading location where young children drown. CPSC's analysis of the fatalities found that 92 percent of the incidents
occurred in residential settings. "Too many young children are drowning," said Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. "Just
as with pools, I urge parents and caregivers to childproof their home and constantly supervise young children around bathtubs, bath seats and buckets. Taking extra safety steps at home can help prevent a tragic drowning."
Of the reported fatalities, 28 percent involved a lapse in supervision, such
as a parent or caregiver leaving the bathroom while the child was in the
bathtub to answer the phone or door, or to retrieve a towel; in 23 percent, the
child was left with another child, usually older; in 10 percent, the child was
found in a product outside the home, such as decorative yard equipment or a
bucket; and another 3 percent were found inside the home in a bucket/container
or trash basket that was being used for cleaning.

SEMINOLE — A 2-year-old boy was rushed to All Children's Hospital
Monday night after he nearly drowned in the family pool, deputies said.
Chantelle M. Bang, 21, pulled her son, Noah, from the pool around 8 p.m. and administered CPR until paramedics arrived, deputies said.
Noah Bang was in stable condition and expected to be released from the
hospital early Tuesday.
According to deputies, the child was in a back room of the 10875 131st Street N home, playing with his mother and uncle when Chantelle Bang left the room for five minutes. When she returned, neither her son nor his uncle were in the room, deputies said.
She found Noah floating in the backyard pool, which has no safety fence
around it, deputies said.
It is believed Noah exited the house through the garage and made his way to
the pool before his mother found him.
The investigation is ongoing.
Pool Fencing is even more important during the holidays in Florida!
We tend to leave doors and windows open more often when the weather is cooler. We also tend to have more guests coming to visit. Holiday guests are wonderful but they also may be less careful and cautious about pool safety than you and I. They also may bring children with them that don't know how to swim.
This can lead to a dangerous situation around the pool which a simple Pool fence from Pool Guard of Tampa can rectify.
Pool Guard of Tampa has made it easier than ever to give the gift of Pool Safety. We accept all major credit cards and we have 48 hour turn around on most pool fence installation in the Tampa bay area, even during the holiday season!
