WHY THE POOL?
While the trend is heat, most everyone is looking for a little cooler. With this in mind, what could be better than beaches or private swimming pools? But social distancing measures oblige, private swimming pools happen to be the best solution.
Although the space is not considerable and the water level is easily controlled, it is very common for children to drown in these pools. This is what happened in a house in Vaucluse. While her parents had installed an inflatable pool in their backyard for her, a two-year-old girl died of drowning in the pool.
A DRAMA THAT CAUSES GENERAL STUPEAR
