NHS launches video to keep kids safe this summer
Commissioners in East Berkshire have launched an online video to keep kids safe in the summer holidays. Called ‘Keep your kids live and kicking this summer’, the video highlights the risks of leaving babies and infants unsupervised near water or open windows, particularly when parents and carers get distracted. Up to 60 children drown every year in the UK. However, most of these deaths could be prevented. Babies and infants need constant supervision around water – whether this is in the bath, paddling or swimming pool, by ponds, rivers or lakes. They also need supervision around open windows.
