After a young kid drowned in a pool, a new warning has been sent to all parents… What you should do is as follows.
A small kid drowned in a back garden pool, prompting a warning to parents about water safety.
His worried parents reported the three-year-old tot missing in Perth, Australia, yesterday.
When the child’s body was discovered in the backyard pool of what is presumed to be the family home, police issued an alert and their search was on the verge of becoming a major operation.
Paramedics attempted to resuscitate the child, but he was unable to be rescued.
The death of the youngster is currently being investigated by cops.
Despite the presence of forensic investigators at the Greenfields residence, the death is not being viewed as suspicious.
According to 7News, real estate photographs from 2017 appear to suggest that the home’s pool is not tightly covered but is not accessible from the house.
However, there is a small side gate that leads to the pool.
When it comes to water and children, the Royal Life Saving Society of Australia has issued a warning to parents that “minutes can make a difference.”
“It’s very crucial,” a spokeswoman told the publication, “that parents’ first port of call is to inspect the water bodies around the home – a bathtub or a swimming pool.”
“Timing is critical, and minutes can make or break a project.”
In the last 12 months, the number of children under the age of five who drowned in Australia has more than doubled.
Covid has reduced the number of swimming lessons available.
