2 Riverside County Drowning Incidents this Week

A woman was killed and a toddler hospitalized in two Riverside County drowning incidents this week.

A toddler was hospitalized Saturday after nearly drowning in a pool in Indio. Riverside County firefighters responded to a call on the 41200 block of Stimson Court, where a 3-year-old had been founding floating in a pool. A bystander rescued the child and performed CPR. The child was breathing when CalFire arrived and was then transported to the hospital in stable condition.

On Monday, a woman drowned in a La Quinta pool. The drowning happened in the 53000 block of Avenida Bermudas and was reported around 5:45 a.m. The woman died at the scene. Police are still investigating the drowning

Riverside County drownings are a serious concern that occur far too frequently every summer. In most situations, drowning is an accident that could have been prevented with proper pool safety precautions. 

“The prevalence of drowning incidents in our community is devastating. Please take the time to educate yourself and your loved ones on drowning prevention,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
