Swimming Pool Injuries
A pool in Kentucky during the summer months is a wonderful thing to have. But, whether it be an above ground pool or in ground pool, both can be very dangerous to children and the elderly. It is estimated that it takes less than 5 minutes and less than 2 inches of water for a child to drown. And every year there are hundreds of adults that suffer serious injuries at either private or public swimming pools.
