According to reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, thousands of people die annually as a result of drownings. This does not include people who die as a result of submersion accidents or other pool-related injuries.
It is important to realize that people injure themselves in both the deep and shallow ends of pools, the latter when they hit their heads on the bottom. A shallow-end injury can result in paralysis, serious brain damage or death if the person is submerged. Many of these accidents result from poor or lack of supervision. Hotels often do not have supervisors at pools. It is important to realize that a single sign that says you swim at your own risk does not necessarily take liability off the hotel or premises.
Drownings and near drownings are the most common pool injuries. These can occur when pools are overcrowded, or there are insufficient lifeguards on duty, or not enough lifeguards on duty. Pool injuries from gutter systems or suctioning systems are also common and can result in serious bowel, abdominal and other injuries. These often result in injuries to children and toddlers.
