ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Sunday, August 9th 2015 [ME NewsWire]

The Ministry of Interior’s Child Protection Centre called upon parents to be vigilant regarding the dangers of allowing children to use swimming pools in their homes without supervision. The Centre noted that pools are usually too deep for children, which increases the dangers of drowning should the child fall into the pool.

In a tragic accident, a two-year old Arab child was found dead in the pool at his parents’ house after drowning.

The Higher Committee for Child Protection at the Ministry of Interior asserted that child safety and protection against all dangers is among the top priorities of the higher leadership and the police institutions. In its statement, the Higher Committee stressed that it is working to tackle all child safety and protection issues by collaborating with other competent authorities to establish procedures that ensure the safety of children.
