Emergency personnel are reminding parents to be extremely vigilant with regards to children swimming after the third near-drowning incident in the area in just 10 days.
Earlier this month, there were two near-drownings in Lakewood and Toms River. Today EMS responded to another incident in the area.
“You can never be too vigilant when watching children at a pool,” a first-responder said.
Pool-owners are also encouraged to have their address and an emergency number clearly visible at all times. You can order a free sign here.
