We represented the parents of a 3-year-old boy who drowned after he entered an apartment complex pool through an unlocked gate in Hanahan, South Carolina. We found the pool was not properly equipped with a self-closing or self-latching gate, despite a state law requiring one on all public pools. In addition, the pool was not covered with a commercial-grade cover, nor did the complex have a certified pool operator at the time of the drowning.
