In the greater Phoenix area, we have now lost 14 children to drownings year to date.  This is as many as the entire year last year!

Mostly toddlers:  No pool fences and parents partying poolside.

WAKE UP!

Grannie

Swimming Distance:  La Jolla Cove, CA

Lost a 3 year old while his guardians partied. Lost a 13 year old boy on a Church outing at local lake: He was swimming too long, too far out and alone. He drowned before they could reach him. So many tragedies so early on this year.

Phoenix lost another child yesterday

An eleven year old drowned yesterday taking his above ground pool cover off………..How tragic,,,,,,,Please be careful this summer.

ImageDROWNING SEASON IS ALL YEAR ROUND IF YOU HAVE A POOL IN ARIZONA!  THE TWO TODDLERS WE JUST LOST WERE AT THEIR OWN HOMES…..NO POOL FENCE.   INSANITY ON THEIR PARENT’S PART….SIMPLE AS THAT.  TOTAL CHILD ENDANGERMENT AND NEGLECT. 

WHERE ARE THE LAWS TO PROTECT THESE CHILDREN?  YOU CAN’T LEAVE A DOG IN A CAR DURING THE SUMMER HEAT OR YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED!  

GRANNIE GATOR HEAD’S DROWNING PREVENTION TEAM’S ( AND MANY OTHER’S)  HELPED CUT THE 2013 CHILD DROWNING IN HALF FROM 14 TO 7.  NOT GOOD ENOUGH!  WHAT WILL 2014 BRING.

 

WE DID IT!  CHILD DROWNINGS DOWN BY 1/2!

Thank all of you on the”Grannie Gatohead Drowning prevention team!” Child drownings in Arizona for 2012 were twenty….2013…….ten! Still not good enough, yet each dollar spent and each stroke swam for child safety was well worth it! More to do in 2014
