The Hidden Danger of Pool Drains

 
Whoa, sometimes you read a story that just takes your breath away. This heartbreaking story involves a six year old girl who had her intestines ripped out after she sat on a drain in a wading pool. She lived, but her life will never be the same. Many people are unaware that pool drains can create a powerful suction, I certainly never realized they were this powerful. After numerous cases of children drowning or being injured by pool drains, several states have already passed pool-safety laws. North Carolina requires pools to have dual drains to lessen the suction. Expect this horrific case to lend extra momentum to a federal pool-safety law that has, until now, stalled in Congress.
