Swimming Pool Death leads to Revised Safety Guidelines

Local Lad\'s Death Inspires New Approach to Swimming Pool Safety

The recent tragic death of Nathan Clark Griffith’s in a Thailand Swimming pool has prompted travel agents to issue swimming pool safety advice.


Statistics have been published in the UK which shows that incidents like this are far from uncommon. It was the recent tragic death of former Island school boy Nathan that brought it to the forefront of people’s attention.


The figures show that an average of five children every year drown in pools abroad, with the majority of these happening in hotels.


Initial investigations have shown that the grille lifted by Nathan was not locked, which it always should be – the guide says that when booking accommodation abroad you must always check the safety provision at the hotel or villa.
