Although the holiday season is a happy time, the dangers of drowning remain very real. We’re sad to report a terrible tragedy that occurred this Christmas day. A three-year-old toddler drowned during a family outing at Ocean Beach while playing with family and friends.
This catastrophe is a sobering reminder that parents must always keep an eye on their children while playing in water, even in seemingly safe environments. The tiniest of distractions can result in disaster, so it is crucial to always have a designated adult, or Aquassurance lifeguard, keeping a careful eye on anyone in the water.
We offer our sincere condolences to the family.
