Why don't we just wrap kids in cotton wool

Standards New Zealand and local councils are now requiring pool owners to erect signs on doors and gates telling everyone to shut them.

Apparently it is in the interests of preventing drowning.

Does anyone know how many kids have drowned in pools in 25 years?

Only 136.  That's 5 a year.

More kids die in cars and at the hands of their care givers than die in pools, lets get our priorities right huh!
