Keep eyes on kids, not on phones

POOL Safety advocate Andrew Plint is urging parents to get off their phones and make sure they supervise their kids properly this summer.


This comes after a social media post on Friday showing a group of kids in the water at Robelle Domain holding a sign saying "watch me not your phone".

Mr Plint said with a long hot summer coming and potentially thousands swimming at Robelle Domain parents need to be proactive to ensure their kids were safe.

"Lifeguards are there for when things go wrong, they're not baby sitters," Mr Plint said.
