Third toddler drowing victim in two days

Sadly a third todler has drowned in the last two days. This is in addition to 5 near drowings in Sydney alone this week. The latest toddler drowing has occured in a backyard swimming pool in Perth. Experts are advising that “the number one message is that close and constant supervision within arms reach for children under 5 is essential to prevent drowning deaths, and just to be aware that children’s abilities do differ and they do require that close supervision at all times to make sure they are safe around the water.”
