The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act

December 19th marked the 7th anniversary of a piece of legislation that changed the way we as a country look at pool safety.

This date marks the enaction of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, which was passed in response to tireless lobbying by the parents of a little girl who lost her life in a pool due to the inherently unsafe design of a powerful suction drain.

Who Was Virginia Graeme Baker?

Virginia Graeme Baker was a girl who loved to swim. In fact, she loved it so much that she learned how to swim by age 3. She was also a celebrated athlete in her neighborhood, competing in swimming competitions in her neighborhood’s community pool on several occasions.

One fateful day in 2002, the little girl (together with 5 other girls and her mother) went to a graduation party for the afternoon. Before long, Virginia jumped into the hot tub to enjoy herself. However, things didn’t go as planned; the 7-year-old got trapped underwater by the pool’s powerful suction drain mechanism and was unable to pull herself free. A couple of adults intervened and were able to pull her out of the pool, unconscious. Despite their best efforts, Virginia was pronounced dead at the hospital, setting off a series of events that would forever change pool safety legislation.

Injuries Caused by Defective Construction Equipment

Construction workers in Texas put their trust in the equipment they use on sites to work properly so that they can complete their work in a hassle-free, injury-free manner. Most of the time, this equipment is large and can contain many moving parts. Because of this, any injuries caused by malfunctioning construction equipment can be catastrophic and life changing.

There are many reasons why construction accidents occur, with defective equipment being one of them. These defects may have occurred while the equipment was being manufactured, or could have arose due to lack of regular required maintenance.
