70 Kids Have Drowned in US Since Memorial Day

Seventy kids have drowned in the United States since Memorial Day ... and there have been 80 near-drownings. Every year, 300 children younger than 5 drown in pools and spas. Here's how to keep your kids safe, courtesy of "Today":

  • Life rings and floats should always be nearby.
  • Fence-off pools to keep kids out.
  • Children should never be left unattended.
  • Keep kids away from pool drains and pipes. 
  • Use floating alarms.
  • In public pools, CPR-trained lifeguards should never lose focus. (Alarmingly, a CBS undercover investigation found lifeguards texting and reading magazines on duty.)
