Mom Alert: 5 year-old nearly drowns due to pool drain

Posted on: July 14, 2009

Moms, are your backyard pools safe for your children this summer?  Last week, five year-old Miguel Marin nearly drowned after his arm was sucked into a pool drain in his family’s backyard hot tub.  

Two police officers at the scene were unable to pull Miguel from the drain.  It was only until his older brother turned off the drain that the officers were able to free Miguel and revive the unconscious child.  Without the proper protection, pools and spas throughout the U.S. can be death traps for swimmers of all ages.
