According to the first U.S. study on child drownings in portable pools, a child dies every five days in such a pool during warm-weather months, demonstrating a considerable risk and affirming the need for consumer education and affordable protection devices.  The research,  published today in the journal Pediatrics, shows 209 deaths and 35 near-drownings of children under 12 during 2001 through 2009.
