Here's some scary statistics and according to the Department of Family and Protective Services, in Texas, there have been 30 children, who drowned in the month of June.
Alone so far in 2009,there have been 60 deaths and last year 82 kids drowned in Texas. Most of the drownings occurred in swimming pools and the latest tragedy in our area happened in Starr county, where a 6 year-old drowned at an apartment pool. Parents are urged to be extremely careful when letting kids go to pools where lifeguards are not on duty.
