Two more major incidents in Queensland Aquatic Facilities over the past few days involving the near drowning of young children appears to present a systemic failure in the delivery of effective supervision in the aquatic environment.  The latest incident sees a 5 year old girl fighting for her life after she wandered away from her father at the Goodna Aquatic Facility.

The message we can take from these incidents is to ensure you have highly trained staff on the pool deck, the Watch Around Water Program is being administered by all staff from the cashier to the Lifeguards and that water clarity and lines of site are maintained at all times.
