The treatment for injuries sustained from a swimming accident will depend on its nature and severity. While minor scratches or bruises can probably be treated at home, a major accident will need professional medical attention.
Although swimming is a popular and enjoyable sport, there are inherent risks involved and safety should always be the number one priority.
Treatment for injuries sustained from a swimming accident
The area immediately around the pool will be wet and slippery. As such, it could very easily lead to someone slipping and falling. This kind of accident could result in a broken limb, or even a head injury, which could be potentially life threatening. The victim should be taken to the nearest accident and emergency unit as soon as possible.
If you witness someone getting into trouble in the pool, then they could be at risk of drowning. A lifeguard will be able to rescue them from the water, and perform CPR if required. In this situation, an ambulance should be called, so that medical assistance can be given as quickly as possible.
