Pool safety for homeowners

Homeowners in South Carolina who have swimming pools should be aware of certain safety responsibilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are an estimated 7.4 million swimming pools in the United States as well as 5 million hot tubs. The CDC also reports that 3,356 fatalities resulting from accidental non-boating drowning take place in the nation every year. For every child who is younger than 14 years old and dies from drowning, an additional five more children will have to receive some form of emergency medical care for nonfatal submersion.

Businesses responsible for keeping customers safe

When people in Myrtle Beach head to a store, movie theater or other public space, they don't expect to be injured during their trip. However, when business owners do not maintain their properties or clear away hazards, slip-and-fall accidents could pose a major risk. While many think of slip-and-fall accidents as minor problems resulting only in discomfort, people can be seriously injured, especially when falling from a significant distance or onto a hard or rocky surface. In addition, people with pre-existing disabilities may have extra reason to be concerned about the effect of such an accident.

Roller coaster derailment injures 9 people

Many South Carolina residents enjoy going to amusement parks and riding on roller coasters. While these rides are mostly safe, accidents sometimes occur. Recently, a roller coaster derailed in Daytona Beach, Florida, causing two people to fall 34 feet to the ground and leaving two others dangling from the ride until they were rescued.
