Kids' pool safety campaign uses YouTube and online game


The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has a new kids safety education program in the hopes of lowering the number of pool drownings and injuries.

Pointing to more than 210 children either drowning or hurt at pools and spas nationwide since Memorial Day, the CPSC announced the centerpiece of its pool safety program -- YouTube videos and an online game. The consumer agency teamed up with Safe Kids USA and the National Drowning Prevention Alliance for the program.
