More Regarding Drowning from Consumer Reports

Water containers and kiddie pools

Empty all outdoor containers of water—including 5-gallon and smaller buckets, insulated coolers, and wading pools—after use. They’re a formidable hazard for small children who can drown in as little as an inch of water. Store them upside down, preferably indoors. If you have a large inflatable pool and can’t dump the water every day, enclose it with a fence; it’s the best protection against drowning, which is the second leading cause of accidental death in children under age 5. Simply covering a pool can be hazardous; children trying to move the cover have become entangled and drowned.”
