So the station contacted different cities to get their take on it. Turns out (you all probably know the answer already) all the cities reported that it was generally a safety issue. Seems once the child has the swimmies on and gets into the pool, the PARENTS feel their child is SAFE and they do not have to be watching them as much!
What gets me is that the kids who are wearing swimmies are what...little children under the age of 5 or so, right? Why wouldn't the parent be in the pool with the young child to begin with? The thought of parents actually thinking that swimmies are going to protect a little one just boggles my mind!
