Another pool tragedy

According to Emirates Today, yet another child died this week in a pool in the Meadows. One year old Ali was at home with the housemaid, when the accident occured. It seems Ali had just started walking recently, but no details were provided as to how he may have drowned. He was taken to hopsital but could not be saved.

Were the pools closed at the Meadows? I thought all Emaar-run properties were closed in order to make the pools safer. If this is the case then why weren't the Meadows pools closed?

By the way, our pool has not re-opened yet. Some pools in the Greens were emptied out, ours was not. There was simply yellow tape placed all around it, but people can still go to the pool area to tan if they want to. I am sure that this new drowning accident will only cause more delays in re-opening the pools.

watch out! People will fall into empty pools and crack their heads open instead of drowning!

Ali was the son of my friend's boss. The pool was a private one... it happened about 4 or 5 days ago - a tragic day

I can't even begin to imagine what Ali's parents are going through. So sad. Allah yirhamo.
