Swimming pools can be immensely dangerous when they are not properly attended to or cared for, particularly when children are involved. The fact that thousands of people die every year from these types of injuries is a testament to their danger.
Some may suffer broken bones from diving and striking their heads, but many more are injured because of improper supervision. A maintenance person at a hotel may not be able to supervise the pool all the time. When he or she leaves, the pool sits unguarded. Additionally, some pools, particularly in residential homes, may be improperly latched or locked.
