Constant and direct supervision is a key factor in preventing children from drowning or suffering other water-related personal injuries. Most hotels do not employ lifeguards. Therefore, parents need to ensure their child’s safety while he or she is playing in the water. While swimming pool and hot tubs can be a lot of fun, they also pose a serious threat to the health, safety, and welfare of children.
