Since drowning is one of the risks any children could face, it is very important that parents and guardians should have some basic information with regards to the dangers of drowning.
• Bath time- Never leave a baby or young children under 4 alone in the bath for a moment, If the phone or a door bell rings, you should take your child with you, or let it ring.
• Garden pond- Never leave your child alone near water specially if your garden pond is not covered or has no fence.
• Children who can swim are safer, but it is still no guarantee of safety. So you should still keep a close watch when your children are near water.
