The leading cause of swimming pool drownings is faulty pool gates and fences and sadly, children under five account for 36% of all drowning deaths in Australia. With Australia having one of the highest pool-ownership rates per capita in the world, pool owners need to check their pool gates and fences regularly.  

Swim Safety Ambassador and legend Laurie Lawrence joined me to talk about this life saving initiative.
