Swimming Pool Safety
Public Awareness Campaign
do more than protect the rights of victims. Often,
they can lead to new laws that improve safety for everyone.
That's exactly what happened in a case that involved
the most tragic of incidents - the death of a child.
A few years ago, pools in Corpus Christi weren't required
to have any type of barrier around them. But the family
of a toddler who nearly drowned - and suffered fatal
brain damage - sued the apartment complex where the
incident occurred. Afterwards, the owner of the complex
joined the victim's lawyer, David Perry, in petitioning
the City Council for greater pool safety measures.
The result was a new ordinance that requires all swimming
pools within the city limits to be fenced. After this
case, many cities throughout Texas also implemented
similar building codes for swimming pools and ordinances
to protect children from this potential danger.
