Wave Pool Accidents
Wave pools are swimming pools with artificially-generated waves designed to replicate the ocean. Wave pools often deliver waves up to 6 feet tall, and these waves can knock down swimmers. In the noisy and crowded conditions, the distressed swimmer often goes unnoticed due to an inadequate number of lifeguards or inattentiveness of the lifeguards.
The tubes that are provided for use in the wave pool can often be part of the problem. A less-experienced swimmer may become overly confident by virtue of the tube. Or, when the tubes are clustered tightly in the water, a swimmer may find it harder to surface.
Water clarity is often an issue in drowning and near-drowning cases. And in wave pool cases, the churning of the water can affect water clarity making it more difficult for lifeguards to see a distressed victim.
