Memorial Day is the official start of summer when many pools and beaches throughout Chicago and the suburbs open. While swimming pools, ponds and lakes provide a source of recreation as well as a way to escape the summer heat, they are also responsible for many injuries and, in some cases, deaths. In the past two years, more than 100 fatal drownings have occurred in Illinois; many victims are children 14 and younger. Swimming pools are the most dangerous but any open water can be hazardous; drowning can also occur in lakes, ponds, streams, and wading pools.
