IT'S ONLY SAFE WHILE
Royal Life Saving research shows that 461 children under the age of five died due to drowning in Australia over the past 15 years, an average of 31 per year.
Of these, half were in home pools and spas. Active adult supervision had either lapsed or was entirely absent in all cases. Don't be complacent about water safety.
