Risks of drowning in fenced and unfenced domestic swimming pools.

Abstract

A method for estimating the risks of drowning in fenced and unfenced domestic swimming pools is presented. Application of this method suggests that the probability of drowning occurring in an unfenced pool is between two to five times higher than that of a fenced pool. It is also estimated that the introduction of pool fencing would reduce the number of drownings in domestic swimming pools by 40% to 67%.
