A young boy has been hospitalized after nearly drowning in a pool on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. This tragedy has once again raised the issue of whether or not cruise ships need active lifeguards around their swimming pools. Most cruise ships do not have lifeguards stationed at their pools. Signs are posted warning passengers to swim at their own risk, similar to what you would see at many hotels, but this is hardly sufficient. A four-year-old boy drowned and a second six-year-old child was airlifted to a hospital after an accident onboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship just this past February. That ship, the Norwegian Breakaway, has not yet installed lifeguards at their pools. As of this writing, only Disney Cruise Line has lifeguards stationed at its family pools. The company made the change last year, after a four year old nearly drowned on one of its ships. How...

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission released its Boating Accident Statistical Report for the year to date. The report shows that 62 people lost their lives in boating accidents in 2013, and there have already been 11 fatalities on the water this year.

The most prevalent type of accident on the water is simply boats colliding with other boats. This is followed closely by boaters crashing into objects. Representatives point out that boat drivers and passengers can minimize risks by simply staying aware of their surroundings. Commission spokesman Lt. Seth Wagner declares that many accidents “can be prevented by more careful operation,” going on to say, “It is critical for operators to maintain a...

The National Football League is expanding a project that athletic supporters hope will address the ongoing issue of traumatic brain injuries and concussions in football. Many players this season will wear sensors called ‘head accelerometers' in their helmets. The devices are designed to assess each impact to a player's head during a game. Two companies are perfecting the sensors for use this fall, based on researchers' feedback, plus information gathered from the NFL teams that participated in a 2013 pilot project, focusing primarily on logistics. “We need a sample of…players across all positions…studying every play type possible,” one of the researchers said. “If we find [the sensors] have utility that could actually help an individual player, my hope would be that we would go league-wide.” All 32 teams could implement the devices as soon as the 2015 season. The project, after approval from the league and the players' union, could...
