A tragic pool drowning in Lanham, Maryland today is a reminder that many others will follow this season. The incident has only been scantily reported but the upshot thus far is that an adult male drowned in an apartment complex swimming pool in the 5400 block of 85th Avenue in Lanham.
The inevitable question, was a life guard on duty and if not why not?
Prince George's County Fire and Rescue and EMS personnel were called to the scene but were unable to revive the victim.
We will learn more in the coming days but the bottom-line is don't swim alone. For more information go to: http://www.maryland-law.com/library/how-to-avoid-pool-drownings-and-other-pool-dangers.cfm
