Question ID: 236364
Here's the issue: There is a 5-year old child left unattended repeatedly at "wave" pools -the large pools with artificial waves that roll in. I need research that describes the historical safety of such pool, especially in terms of any previous drownings that happened at such pools.

Hello again, Mr. Franklin, I hope you don't mind seeing me again in another question. I assume you are more concerned with the mentions of wave pool accidents, so I listed websites where these cases are mentioned. It does seem apparent to me that most of the cases are children who were have been left or allowed to stray by their companion adults. I also added some articles on wave pool safety.
