Diving and Spinal Cord Injuries
Diving and Spinal Cord Injuries also can occur around water, especially swimming pools, rocks, and piers. Diving related accidents can result in permanent paralysis, severance of the spinal cord, paraplegia and quadriplegia. Diving accidents can occur when the diving area is not large or deep enough and the diver hits the slope of a pool or the bottom instead of the deep water area. Horseplay can result in someone falling into the water and becoming injured, as can jumping into the water and landing on someone. The owners and operators of the swimming area are responsible to maintain the safety of these areas and are in the best position to protect swimmers from serious injury and death.
