One of the regions that can be found in inside of the larger Oxfordshire area, South Oxfordshire is known formally as a district. A notable aspect of the region is that the River Thames flows through the region. The river itself, flows for over forty seven miles through the region. As a result many of the homes in the area are at risk of flash flooding.
The Dangers of Flooding in the Region
Nevertheless even when there is not any flooding likely to take place, those near the river are still at risk. That is because a number of different activities that take place near the river are known to be quite dangerous.
For instance someone may choose to do some fishing there. Fishing is a dangerous thing to do for a number of reasons. One such reason is that any eye injury could occur as a result of a stray hook. However, there is also the risk of someone falling into the water whilst they are fishing.
Of course, whilst near a river, someone may choose to row a boat through the canal. A boat that is rowed through a river also brings with it comes dangers. The weather may take a sudden turn for the worst and this could cause some difficulties in terms of boating. However, there may also be some other boaters in the water. The other boaters might not be that interested in the well being of others. As a result they might end up colliding into another persons boat.
Depending on the situation in question the injuries could end up being quite serious. Those looking to make use of a river must always know of what can go wrong. Knowing what can go wrong, allows for those at risk to plan ahead of time, and have the equipment they might need to treat any of the potential injuries.
