An Assault-Pool with Extending Mag Leaves One Child Dead in Arizona
Via Tucson News Now:
Just like so many tragic gun deaths, drownings can be avoided -- with just a tiny bit of common sense on the part of parents.
Fire crews are reacting after three drowning calls already this year; they are sharing PSAs and calling on adults to keep their eyes on the kids at all times when around swimming pools.
So far crews have responded to three potential drowning calls, two in city limits and one on the northwest side that turned deadly.
Tucson Fire and Northwest Fire are dusting off the PSAs, both in English and Spanish. The focus of the videos is adult attention, and how quickly a child can go under, without making a splash or letting out a cry.
They say an adult should be watching at all times, not just present outside or distracted, but actively watching. . .
