At least seven people died within six days through drowning but the deaths were avoidable, says the Police Public Relations Officer for  Lagos, Benjamin Hundeyin.

The Nation reports that Hundeyin said the seven persons drowned at different swimming pools and beaches in the state within six days.

“This week alone, seven people drowned in hotel swimming pools and beaches. Two drowned in one hotel in Mushin and one in a hotel on Lagos Island.

“One also drowned at Ibeshe Island, two fell into Third Mainland Bridge in an accident and one in a hotel in Shasha,” Hundeyin said..

According to Hundeyin the deaths would not have happened if all the necessary safety measures were put in place and observed.

The Lagos Police Command spokesperson advised hoteliers to employ lifeguards and have lifeguards off duty sign on display when necessary at their facilities, while urging  visitors to hotels to always read instructions on hotel facilities, particularly the swimming pool, to avoid fatality.
