Former Secretary of State James Baker's granddaughter was disemboweled and died when she got trapped on a drain. He pushed for a law to be passed to change drain covers and either have two drains or device to prevent entrapment. This is only for commercial pools and there honestly isn't the bureaucracy in place to inspect all pools for this. Not to mention private pools are exempt.
Always good to remind kids not to sit on drains - clothed or otherwise. There can be a great deal of suction in a pool.View Thread
