The largest number of people who die in New York pool accidents each year are children. Most of these are children under the age of five. Nothing is more shocking than this crucial fact: Nearly all of these child drowning deaths could have been avoided. They never should have happened. 99 percent of child pool drowning accident deaths were the result of negligence. In fact, nearly all swimming pool accidents (no matter the age of the victim) occur because of someone else’s negligence.
The state of New York tracks the locations of swimming pools across the state. These are pools that are regulated, at least to some degree, by the state. The data collected by the state reveals that 58 percent of swimming pools in New York are located at or run by:
- Apartment complexes
- Aquatic amusement centers
- Health clubs
- Homeowner associations
- Mobile home parks
- Municipal facilities
- YMCA facilities
Approximately 20 percent of New York swimming pools are located at hotels, motels, resorts, and other lodging locations. 8 percent are located at camps for children.
The drowning rate at these various swimming pool locations is generally proportionate to the percentage of pools in each in category. There is one exception: less than 1 percent of swimming pools are run directly by the state of New York, however, the drowning death rate is proportionately higher at these types of facilities.
There are thousands of residential swimming pools located across New York. The precise number is not tallied because the state does not have the same level or regulatory authority over private swimming pools. Data regarding residential pools largely comes in the form of building permits when new construction is proposed.
Tragedy strikes throughout the year at residential swimming pools. This includes drowning deaths as well as other aquatic accidents in which victims of someone else’s negligence sustain significant injuries, including permanent disabilities in many instances.
