Thank you for bumping this up!
A very timely reminder as this exact thing happened to ds2 (3yo) on the weekend. 4 adults and 4 kids in my parents pool and ds2 managed to slip under the water without anyone realising straight away. Luckily dh grabbed him before the worst happened. It was the scariest thing that has ever happened and I am so so so thankful that it was a happy outcome in our case!

Ditto... happened to my niece on holiday last year. She was playing in front of us by the pool and quietly slipped back into the water without her arm bands. Three of us didn't notice until, thankfully, my husband, who was in the water, grabbed her, she was right under, and lifted her out of the water. Such a close call. Made me realise that drowning can be silent and quick. So so scary.

I know this is an old post but my first reaction was not to say "omg its an amazing article, everyone needs to hear about this." It was to say "pull your finger out parents and watch your kids properly."

Either way does it matter VicPark??? If it makes someone read it it has potential to save a child's (or adults) life. It's a wake up to everyone, even the super vigilant!

I don't know a family that has lost a child from drowning but I have heard from 2 separate families with pools of close calls when a child has gone under and no one has noticed while there are adults supervising in the pool.
At my house I watch children playing in my pool by walking around so I'm at an elevated level.
