Olympic swimmer encourages parents to rethink pool safety

Bode Miller and his wife, Morgan, are grieving over the loss of their 19-month-old daughter. They opened up to the Today Show about the day their little girl drowned in their family pool. "There's not a day that goes by that I don't pray for the opportunity to go back to that day and make it different," an emotional Morgan Miller said.

Will you recognize drowning when you see it?

If you're like most people, you've never heard of the instinctive drowning response. Most of us think that a drowning person will call for help, arms waving and splashing. According to Dr. Francesco A. Pia, these signs show aquatic distress, which occurs before the instinctive drowning response.

Two recent pool accidents highlight the need for pool safety

Two swimming pool accidents with tragic results this week in Alabama are a reminder that everyone needs to take precautions around pools. In Homewood, a two-year-old boy drowned in a pool at his apartment complex. A 12-year-old girl drowned in a pool in Mobile when she slipped and fell into it.
