Samut Prakan Province is asking parents and the general public to be vigilant for drowning incidents among children, says vice governor.
Samut Prakan Vice Governor Tanu Boonlert is calling upon local authorities and community leaders to promote vigilance among the general public to help prevent the dangers of drowning, especially among children, as Samut Prakan is a province with a high number of drowning incidents.
Warning signs and life preserving instruments such as life vests, flotation devices, and warning devices such as whistles or bells will be made available at areas such as public ponds. Officials will be placed on standby at all public swimming locations and tourism attractions to ensure safety.
Schools are encouraged to provide swimming classes and teach proper rescue techniques to children aged 5 years or more. Meanwhile, a regulation on ponds excavation will place security concerns as one of the major factors of consideration.
Findings show that Thailand’s drowning cases were 5 to 15 times higher than the cases in developed countries.
Drowning is also the most common cause of death among youth aged 15, which is twice the rate of fatalities caused from road accidents.
Cases of youths drowning occurred as numerous as 1,420 times annually, with most incidents found in the Northeastern region, followed by the Central, Northern, and Southern regions respectively.Facebook.
