Some of my best memories as a kid are going to my friend’s house in the summer to swim in his family’s outdoor pool. Pools promise endless summer fun, but proper safety is incredibly important for those who use a backyard pool.

According to a viral social media PSA, even swimsuit color is important to keep our children safe.

Sadly, drowning is the number one cause of death in children under five, and it is important to be aware of the many safety issues that arise when swimming, even when it comes to swimsuit color.
