Waterpark- maybe not

I was going to take my kids to the local waterpark today-it’s ladies’ day- until I read the news about the death of an English school boy,Nathan Griffiths,  in a waterpark in Pattaya Thailand. He got sucked into one of the underwater grills after diving to rescue his goggles.

Now all the whistling and over anxiousness of the lady lifeguards at out water park don’t seem so ill placed when they see my 5 year old dive into the whirlpool and swim underwater. Maybe their concerns are justified. Maybe I should take more care. And maybe we should just go to the beach from now on.
