Indianapolis Boy Fights Death After Nearly Drowning in Pool Party Accident


Indianapolis saw another instance of a child almost drowning in a swimming pool when a young boy celebrating his 13th birthday was found floating near the bottom of a neighborhood pool who now remains in critical condition (as of Tuesday, May 31st) at Riley Hospital. Our prayers go out to this boy and his family, and we hope that he recovers fully from this tragic accident over the Memorial Day Weekend.

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has resurged its “Pool Safely: Simple Steps Save Lives” campaign for another year. The CPSC is promoting a national educational effort to try and protect kids from swimming pool drowning accidents, as well as injuries due to entrapment incidents in both swimming pools and spas.

This summer, when you or loved ones are by a pool or lake, please take the necessary steps to prevent any chance of serious harm or drowing. Be safe and enjoy your summer.
